Hello, can anyone help with my wifes grandfather please? The CWGC says that Saddler 76100 S R Richards "A" Bty. 55th Bde Royal Field Artillery died on 20 July 1918 and is buried in the Suez War Memorial Cemetery in Egypt. I can find the 54th and 56th Bdes in the lists but not the 55th. Does anyone know what they were doing in Egypt or anything about Stephen R Richards.

Thanks in anticipation
