Remembered Today:

11th Argyll's


Recommended Posts

I have a great uncle who joined the 11th Btn Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, he died on Monday 19th April and is buried at Souchez.

I have been told that the 11th never fought at Arras so he must have been with another Batalion, does anyone have any idea how i might go about finding out :(

You can find out something about individual units from the parent site at www.1914-1918.net. From there we find that the 11th Argylls, as part of the 15th Division, were, in fact, at Arras.

There is a purported personal diary floating around the internet, for example, at http://www.firstworldwar.com/diaries/rlm.htm .

If genuine, this is the diary of an officer in the 11th Argylls, and covers this period.

Hope this helps.

Nae bother at a' man.

From the info the 11th Argy;es went into the line near Roeux on 18th/19th April. The War Diary at the National Archives may mention their casualties incurred at that time.

I am awaiting delivery of the reprint History of 15th Division whenever Naval & Military Press sort out their printers.

Aye
