Although not an exact science as not knowing when he was wounded (as it could have been months, weeks or just hours before he died ) around the time of his death the 8th Btn were in Belgium.

January 1-6th they were in Railway Wood Ypre. 7th January until 6th February they were at Serques.

From 7th and for the remainder of February the Btn was in the trenches at Verbrandenmolen.

Regards Doug
