Harry Brewin 51050 North Staffs. Reg.

I'm trying to find out if Harry was killed in action or died of wounds. Harry died on the 20th May 1918 and is buried in Boulogne Eastern Cemeterty. Was there a hospital at Boulogne? If so, I'm thinking that Harry could have been wounded at Arras and died in hospital. I would like to think that I'm spot on with my research, but would appreciate any further help from a North Staffs. expert.

Regards. Llew.

Thank you sir, appreciated.


Thanks again. I've just discovered the Hospitals link on the Long, Long Trail site. All I need now is for some one with far more knowledge than what I possess to back my Arras thinking and I can then move on the George William Carr ASC.

Regards to you both. Llew.
