Dave,

Could you please look up the actions for the 8th battalion on September 30th 1918.

Looking for info on Capt Simpkin who was KIA attached from the 13th Yorks.

As always very grateful for any help.

Bob.

Hi Dave

Please could you let me where the 2nd Battalion were between 7 and 13 August 1916 and what they were doing? I am researching 24031 Pte Alfred Strutt and his service records state he was cpatured at Guillemont on 8 August 1916 and in Schneidemuhl POW camp. Unfortunatley they also state he was captured on 12 August 1916 at Hulluch and was in Dulmen POW camp. I do know he was in Dulmen by 27 August 1916 so perhaps Hulluch is correct.

Thanks very much

Regards

Steve

I'll no longer be doing any look-ups on this thread. Feel free to take it over, anyone.

Thanks,

Dave.
