Wick Salient July 19th 1916

Does anyone have any details about the attack offensive on Wick Salient July 19th 1916? I'm particulary interested in the involvement of the 2/6 bat Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

This was part of the 61st Divisional front for the disastrous diversionary attack better known as the battle of Fromelles. It is covered in the Official History 1916, vol 2.

Thanks for your help and your explanation regarding the battle of Fromelles.

I had a look at your web site and found it helpful.

I note the book you mentioned and wondered if anyone else on the forum could also recommend books or articles about the battle of Fromelles, Wick Salient July 19th 1916?

Hi Nick

I think there was a article in the Western Front Association Journal "Stand To" some years ago about the Australians part in the Battle but I can not remember which issue.
