15th April – End Of Battle
My great uncle William Wallace Swann was wounded at Bailleul on 16th April 2018 and died 3 days later.
He was a Northumberland Fusilier serving with the 9th Battalion and I will visit his grave in Boulogne in October.
I am not sure exactly where he was in or near Bailleul when injured but these maps give a good idea of the battle line up.
Does anyone know where his battalion was on the map /
I guess he was attached to one of the battalions in the 34th or 33rd Division and would value any information before I visit Bailleul at the end of October
