i have just been looking at the war diary for the first battalion lincolnshire regiment dated july 1916.at the end of the page for the 3/7/16 it says that a 2nd lieut F C Hills was killed on that day.

the thing is i can't find any reference to a 2nd lieut f c hills 1st bn lincolns anywhere.

can anyone help with any info on him

thanks
