Is there any more information to be had about this reletive of mine?

Lifted this from the CWGC site

Private JOHN WILLIAM CLARKE

75851, 1st/4th Bn., Northumberland Fusiliers

who died age 18

on 27 September 1918

Son of Mr. H. V. and Mrs. A. Clarke, of Sherburn, Malton, Yorks.

Remembered with honour

WORMS (HOCHHEIM HILL) CEMETERY

As far as we know he died in captivity. The questions that spring to mind include what action was he in, what circumstances surround hie cature, death etc.

Anything would be appreciated.

Best wishes

Bob

The strong possibility is that he was taken POW on the Aisne on the 27th May 1918, like my Great Uncle who was in the neighbouring battalion, the 5th Northumberland Fusiliers.

Have you tried the 4th Bn NF website. You can easily google it. The webmaster have be able to help with lists of missing men etc.

Regards

David
