Hi,

Wonder if anyone with an interest in the Devonshires can assist.

I'm trying to get a better idea of the potential circumstances surrounding the death of a relative, and so am gathering information about the fighting at Loos on September 30, 1915. My specific interest is the involvement that day of B Company of the 9th battalion.

Cheers,

JWF
