Royal Engineers Special Brigade

Hello Terry

I see that it's almost 10 years since I linked up with the forum regarding my grandfather, James Norman Lovett (Army no. 220233) - No. 2 Special Company, Royal Engineers.

DV next Saturday, 10th November, I hope to visit the area around Ypres & Passchendaele & be at the Menin Gate for Last Post.  This is an ambition I've long had.  I wonder if there's anything I should look out for on my brief visit to the area (it's an organised trip with #oakhall, so I won't be able to go where I wish) that may relate to the Special Company my grandfather served in.  Thanks.

Jonathan

PS Attached is a photo of my grandparents on their wedding day in 1922!

Craig,

 

Thanks for this info. I guess the war gratuity would have been paid to his family?

Yes, along with any other monies (unpaid wages etc) which the army held.
