Armed Forces / Re: 10th Btn Lincolnshire Regiment (Grimsby Chums).
« on: Friday 10 February 06 12:18 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Manmack, Thank you for the reference to the book "Grimsby's Own" by Bob Chapman, i will definitely try to get hold of a copy, I've been reading "The Somme" by Gary Sheffield for some info.
In regards to Harry not being found, Explains why i cannot find his name on any roll of honour, yet he is on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site?
In Memory of Private Harry Skipworth 1475
10th Btn Lincolnshire Regiment - Died 1st July 1916.
Which was the 1st day of The Somme. the Lincoln's advanced south of the villiage La Boiselle, suffering many, many casualties.
It's a little harder trying to trace relatives from Australia.
Many thanks Manmack!
