continued from Part 3…..

I would like to be able to say that after undertaking this research that I can provide information about the whereabouts of all of the missing soldiers of the 3rd Battalion, unfortunately it is with a heavy heart I must write that this is not the case. There are 25 soldiers listed as killed on 4, 5, 6 & 7 October 1917 that little-to-no verifiable or factually accurate information can be sourced. The link below will display the data that I have been able to collate about these men so far.

3rd Battalion – Names 4, 5, 6 & 7 October 1917

Whilst this might be the end of research for these men, the search for information about their brothers in arms will continue. Who knows what the future holds, someday someone might well stumble across some old files or locate accurate accounts of what happened to these men, for now we can only remember them and the sacrifices they made for us.

Lest We Forget
