Remembered Today:

23rd Battalion, Northumberland Fusiliers.

I am looking for the whereabouts of the 23rd Battalion, Northumberland Fusiliers, 102nd Brigade, 34th Division, on Thursday 7th June 1917.

A Holmfirth man serving with them was severely wounded by shrapnel and died of wounds at the dressing station a few hours later in the same day. He was buried at Bailleul Road East Cemetery, St. Laurent-Blangy.

Many thanks for any information.

They were in the attack on Greenland Hill, Arras 5th-8th June, 1917. See the book "Tyneside Scottish" by Graham Stewart & John Sheen in the Pen & Sword "Pals" series.
