Greetings, anyone studied the Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry action in the Salonika campaign?
I have posed on a previous thread about one Gilbert Leslie Sowter, buried at Hove Old Cemetery :
I have not been able to find any tributes or obituaries to George Sowter going through local papers as yet, but found an interesting news article in Sussex Daily News of 29th May 1922 about Gilbert Sowter, starts
"The funeral took place at Hove Cemetery on Friday of Mr. Gilbert Leslie Sowter of 27 Blatchington Road, Hove who died on 23rd May, after many months a sufferer of tuberculosis contracted during 4 years war service with the British Red Cross and the Oxford and Bucks Light infantry, two and a half years of which he spent in Salonica. He was only 24 years of age. "
Am I right in thinking that it was 7th and 8th Battalions of the Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry who were serving at Salonika ?
