Remembered Today:

MGC - Lt W R Holloway

Chris Best

Recommended Posts

A Canadian friend has asked me a number of questions about her GU's MIC - I've replied taking her to the www.1914-1918.net/mics.htm site.

We know he was KIA 20/9/17 but haven't a clue which company he belonged to or brigade he supported.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks, Steve. I've signed over my £3.50 but TNA haven't coughed the document up yet. Think I'll call it a night for now and come back tomorrow.

Thanks again, Steve :D
