Regimental Information:

The war diary makes no mention of Other Rank casualties. All we know at present is the Brigade went to France in June 1916, when they joined the 40th Division.

Point of Interest:

On the Town Hall stairwell there is a memorial board that commemorated all those who served fro the town. One of those listed is a Gunner F.W. Goodman, 46th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery. We have no evidence to support it but he might be a brother.
