WW1 Mesopotamia Campaign
« on: Sunday 12 November 17 14:23 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I'm keen to find more indepth information on the role played by the Norfolk Regiment during this military campaign.

I know of one relative; Lance Corporal George Caleb Gore who took part and later died in (September?) 1917 and later buried in India.

I would love to have more information on his passing and battles involved during the campaign against the Ottomans.
