      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

Hello!

I´m looking for informations about the fight of Roeux in the night of June 24/25.

The german unit was Inf.Rgt.465 (238.Inf.Div.). Unfortunately I don´t know the british opponents.

Thanks a lot!

Hi Andreas,

I guess you mean in 1917 :) it was a raid carried out by 1st Bn Royal Irish Fusiliers.

Hi Charlie!

Yes, of course, 1917. Sorry!

Thanks a lot for the info! The german sources don´t mention that battle. My only chance of german infos is probably the regimental history.

The 238th Inf.Div. donated a medal of bravery for the guys. I will show it, when it arrives the next days!
