Doug,

It contains a photograph plus CWGC info. Obviously no photo no entry. I have found only 2 11th Cheshires but there are supposed to be around 500 pictures. Not sure if there are that many as I haven't counted them yet :lol:

According to the sleeve it is only disk 1. How many more there are I don't know.

Hope this helps

Bob,

Nothing on Brodrick but have the following photograph and information on Brooke.

Lt Charles? Berjew Brooke DSO

Yorkshire Regiment formerley attd 1st Battalion The Queen's (Royal West Surrey Regiment) and formerly special reserve Suffolk Regiment.

Died Saturday 1st July 1916. Age 21

Son of Charles Berjew Brooke and Maud Gwenddolyn Brooke of Colne House Brantham Suffolk.

Peronne Road Cemetery, Maricourt, Somme France.

I had queried the Charles hope this is the correct man. I would say there is the possibility of a transcription error.

Hope this helps.
