Thank you very much for the information, I will send you what I have on Harold Mercer
C/175 were in action that day near the village of Agny, just to the south of Arras , Bombardier Harold Mercer was killed along with James Dooris who was a shoeing Smith, both men being from Liverpool. I may be wrong on this but judging by their service numbers it seems like both men were territorials. While the war diary doesn't mention any casualties that day , it does state that the "enemy fired 70 gas shell on brigade areas" so that may be related to their deaths.
I have a website on 175 brigade. click on the link below.
P.S. If you've any more info on your Granddad, I'd like to know, and would add it to the site and roll of honour.
