One thought on “Friday 24th September 1915

  1. Absolutely fascinating! My great, great uncle Archibald Brown Johnson would have served with Hub. Sadly he was killed at Gommecourt and is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial to the missing. He was in the 2nd Battalion and joined the 1st in the autumn of 1915.

    Have you read ‘Four Years on the Western Front’ by A. Rifleman. The rifleman concerned was Aubrey Smith who was in the 1st Battalion throughout and after 2nd Ypres became a driver in the 1/LRB Transport Section where he remained for the rest of the war. He won the MM and Bar!
