Help !?

My Great Uncle Charles Gladwinfield (AKA Charlie Field) is buried at the Railway dugouts burial ground. He was killed in no mans land bringing back wounded. I have just found this out ... he was shot on the 21st May 1915 I think, and died on the 22nd of May 1915 but what I would like to know is in which battle.

My niaive assumption by the localle and the date, that it wouldbe something to do with Hill 60 or am I a bit late on the date.

He was in the Kings Own Liverpool Rgmt. A riffleman in the 1st/6th battalion

Can anyone give me any pointers on this, and where to find more info

I would also like to find a freind of Charles - called Edward W Hodson

I think he was the Chaplain

Any clues appreciated

Graeme,

1/6th Kings Liverpool were involved with the capture of Hill 60 but as you say this was earlier, 17th-22nd of April.

According to my info they were still in this area in May but not classed as having taken part in any battles at this time - officially.

I'm sure someone on the forum will be able to furnish some further info for you.

Bob.
