    Hello Mike,

    I have a photograph of my great grandfather, William Henry Hart Carline that I am willing to share if you want it. He was in the Sherwood Foresters 1/6 Btn. and died at Gommecourt 1-Jul-1916. His body was not recovered and he is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial in France as well as a local memorial at New Brampton in Derbyshire. According to the information that I have been able to find on various websites, war records and books etc, he joined the pre-war territorials in 1908 and was shipped to France with the 46 Division in Feb 1915. He went missing on 1st July but was not declared dead until 1917. His military serial number is 240022. I am interested in obtaining any additional information that I can about him and would welcome any tips. I am just wading my way through, “A Lack of Offensive Spirit? The 46th Division at Gommecourt, 1-Jul-1916,” by Alan MacDonald. It does have quite a bit of information about Gommecourt and some of the men who fought there.

    Thanks,
    Shirley
