my great grandfather walter ernest cramp 14th battalion

Postby crampy » Wed Dec 16, 2009 11:59 pm

hi my father recently passed away and i was left a memorial plaque of my great grandfather Walter Ernest Cramp number 25895 ,I looked on the CWGC site too find that he was a lance sergeant and died 3rd of May 1917 of wounds, he is also listed in the roll of honour on the Worcester Regiment Site
On the site there is also 1 photograph of the battalion in France but there are no names too the photo apart from 1. I was wanting too know whether there are any more photos of the battalion so i can put a face too my great grandfathers name As I only found out this infomation after my dad had passed away. Also any other information about him and the battalion would be of great interest ....... Thanks Paul Cramp
