COMPLETED - POW Minden Camp - but where was Lewis John Piper Captured?
« on: Saturday 10 December 16 19:02 GMT (UK) »
Frustrating but I can't read this form, and it's the first one of its kind I have come across. Lewis John Piper was in Minden Camp, but where was he captured?

Hi
http://www.thelincolnshireregiment.org/williamhenrywoods.shtml
Hard to read, but given the date and Battalion could it be Hargicourt or similar (I admit it does nt read like that)

Looking at a modern day map, lots of villages around Hargicourt, Aisne whose names end in court
Only a possibility of course someone may have a much better idea :)
