This is possibly a case of two brothers being mortally wounded on the same day and on the same battlefield, but dying on different days.
Capt Daniel MacDougald COWIE, 10/11th Highland Light Infantry, DOW on 17/9/1916 after the attack on Martinpuich and was buried in Millencourt Communal Cemetery Extension. In the same division his brother, 2/Lt William Cowie, 13th Royal Scots, DOW 28/9/1916 and was buried at Etaples Military Cemetery. The 13th also attacked Martinpuich on the 15th and seems not to have been in later attacks before the 28th.

Of course, there may have been a day or two between their woundings. Can anyone give any more specific information please?

The Cowie family were originally from Lanarkshire, but had migrated to Australia (NSW) before the war. A third brother, Lt James Cowie, served in the 9th HLI and the 7th Duke of Wellington's. He appears to have survived the war.

".....This is is possibly a case of two brothers being mortally wounded on the same day and on the same battlefield, but dying on different days......"

Frederick James ADAMS was killed on the night of the landing or early the next morning
Edgar Robert ADAMS Red Cross file says he was wounded after the landings and seen as he was taken prisoner by Turkish soldiers, he was not heard of again

Their dates of death are entered as April 25, 1915

During the fighting in the Hindenburg Line in the area of Fontaine-lez-Croisilles in May 1917 the following two brothers were both sadly killed on the same day - another unfortunate pair to add to the list.

Both are aged 21 which could mean they were twins - or could be coincidence. Both have MICs on Ancestry but no service records. They also appear on the 1901 census aged 5 and came from Carmichael Lanarkshire.

Just found these twin brothers buried in Coppenhall (St Michael) Churchyard, Cheshire.

Notice that the only difference in their details are their first names and service numbers (consecutive).

VILLIERS-RUSSELL, Henri
Senior Reserve Attendant
M/10984. H.M.S. "Formidable."
Royal Naval Auxiliary Sick Berth Reserve
1st January 1915. Age 29.
Son of Isabelina Villiers-Russell, of 17, Audley St., Crewe, and the late Benjamin Villiers-Russell. His twin brother, John, also died on service in the same incident.

I read somewhere that the Villiers-Russell twins were washed ashore in each other's arms and the subsequent national outcry helped bring about a ruling that no brother should serve in the same unit as his sibling.

Yorkshire Regiment
Arthur was killed in action aged 28 towards the end of the Somme offensive in a 5-45am attack on the

BEANLAND WALTER

Walter was killed in action (wounded and missing) aged 29 whilst the battalion were fighting during the Battle of the Aisne
on September 14th 1914

Walter was the husband of Ethel May Beanland (nee Foster ) the couple married at St James Hull in 1913

LA FERTE-SOUS-JOUARRE MEMORIAL



The three brothers and their parents Benjamin and Lydia Beanland can be found on the 1901 census residing at Fernleigh House Highfield Terrace Skipton Yorks

Arthur, Henry,and Walter all have a commemorative memorial inscription’s on Middlesbrough War Memorial
The only connection I have been able to find with the brothers, and Middlesbrough, is that their parents
resided there sometime during or after the war and I presume, put their son’s names forward for inclusion on the memorial
