Andrew P Posted 14 December , 2002 Share Posted 14 December , 2002 I'm researching an officer who was killed in this vicinity on the 21st of Septmeber 1917. Lt Benno Carl Lehmann MC of the 3rd Machine Gun Company AIF had been wounded at Glencourse Wood and made his way back to a dressing station to have a tetanus shot as he didn't want to be evacuated. He was making his way back to his company when he was killed by a shell near Clapham Junction. Some fellow officers of his unit buried him and erected a cross over his grave. The grave had the map location of; Belgium Sheet 28.N.E. 1:20,000 J.13 D.50.95. Unfortunately the grave was never found and Lt Lehmann is remembered on the Menin Gate. Was Clapham Junction on Menin Road itself? and can anyone tell me if there is anything on that spot in the present day, such as a cemetery, buildings etc. Thanks Andrew Pittaway Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
