As the 2/7th. Warwicks were in action at the very south-west end of the battle, I have always been doubtful that any would be found at Pheasant Wood. After talking to the very knowledgeable staff at the Fromelles Museum however, I have changed my view somewhat and now believe that there just might be a chance that some are now unidentified at the new Cemetery. It appears that not only did they take the first line trenches with just 4 wounded, but they quickly entered the reserve trenches also, but a rapid counter attack was decisive. This left bodies in the first and reserve trenches, and common sense says that the Germans could not leave them there. The light railway ran just at the back of the reserve trenches to Fromelles, clearly marked on trench maps and visible from aerial photographs. So maybe they used this means to transport bodies lying in their trenches to Pheasant Wood. Something that might however be a problem, and not mentioned in the diary for that day, is that around 60 Germans were captured when the first wave overran the front line trenches. These 60 or so were ordered across 'no mans land' to surrender, but in one of those regrettable incidents of war, were thought to be a counter attack and at least half of them were shot dead. Perhaps then the Germans were not too well disposed to 61st. Division bodies after this incident. We searched the local CWGC but could only find 3 named 2/7th. bodies, these were at Aubers Ridge Cemetery.
From trench map co-ordinates scaled to fit Google aerial views, the attached photograph fits perfectly as Masselot Street Trench in a remarkable state of repair. Where the trench ends on the photograph is where the front line trench scar is clearly visible on Google and is also correct for the co-ordinates in the diary. The 2/7th. filed out to the right to fill the lines between here and Rue Trivelet.
I will have to send the photograph separately as I need to reduce the file size.
