Interested in 11th Battalion Middlesex Regiment as my grandfather served with them and was badly wounded.

Only just came across this forum. It’s been fantastic reading. 

Be grateful if anyone can point me in the direction of any other resource on the 11th BTN Middlesex.

I went to the new National Army Museum. Supposedly was the  Middlesex collection but there was nothing! Other Regimental museums around the country have brilliant displays, but the NAM had nothing on display what so ever!

Thank you. Will look it up

The diary johnboy refers to can be found at :

The medal card tells you he arrived in France on 31 May 1915.  He seems to have been demobbed at the end of the war (ie not invalided out wounded).  There are no further records as far as I can see.
