Looked in the usual places, couldnt find any reference to his company.
In case you haven't seen these.
If the above fails with a session timeout or similar just do the search again from Namesearch tab at http://recordsearch....asicSearch.aspx

Unfortunately no Red Cross Wounded and Missing report, they often mention the company.
A couple of interesting points from his service record.
- It includes his will taken from his pay book.,Very short; "I leave every thing to my mother. Mrs .........". "Including all my money in Savings bank"
- He was a naughty boy in Wittes, given 10 days Field Punishment No. 2 for "Failing to comply with a general order" by "being found beyond the limit of the Billiting area" AWOL?
Thanks although I've looked in the war diaries previously, couldn't find any B213's. I'd love it if I could find them for the 23rd.
Revisiting the April 1916 diary for the day he died, it is hard to isolate any particualr company as it looks like they were all involved in some part. (e.g machine gun sections moved between companies)
