Hello All.

I'm new to site and forum but hope I,m going about it right!

Looking for any info,details, leads,contacts, concerning Gouzeacourt Wood. My grandfather was, I believe, wounded here, shot through the neck either attacking German trenches/postions or by Germans attacking the British line of defence. I have tried the web in general but find this battle mostly covered by American sites.

Can any one shed light on this battle...especially what regiments were involved.Grandad served with both the 2nd Batt' R Warks Reg and then 2/4 and 5th Batts, R Berks.

Thanx

Ray

Have a look at The Wardrobe website, which is the regimental site of the Royal Berkshire Regiment:

They have all the battalion War Diaries on-line, which you can view and print off. They are also working on a project about the regiment in WW1 and if you email them they might be able to help further.

There is a 'Battleground Europe' title by Bill Mitchinson which covers this area, but I forget which one. Try the Pen & Sword website:
