We are attempting to make an Archive of all the men buried in Harlebeke New British Cemetery. Can you help? We are looking for biographical details, photos, in fact any information. There will be an Archive here in the UK and also one in Harlebeke itself.

Any information will be helpful, as even "hearsay" can send us in the right direction.

Only a small piece of info for you - of course you can easily see these names from the CWGC list, but I had recorded them since they were in my grandfather's battalion, 7th Seaforth.

Part of the 9th (Scottish) Div, these were the last casualties of the battalion in the Great War. Crossing the Lys near Harlebeke on the night of the 19th October, the battalion was in action until the evening of the 26th October, 1918. The KIA's of their final attack on 25th October, 1918 are all buried at Harlebeke (7) plus one DOW of this day. (There was one further KIA from this day - Pvte G Wands 285128 - a ''missing'' and who is commemorated at Tyne Cot).

Buried at Harlebeke

25 Oct 18 - KIA

L/Cpl W Anderson S/41535 (b Barrhead Lanarks, e Paisley, Renfrew, formerly 17026 A&S H)

Pvte A Catterall S/22631 (b Livsey Lancs, e Dunfermline Fife, formerly TR/1/1516 T R Bn)

Pvte J K Lynch 204148 (b Irvine Ayr, e Hamilton Lanark, formerly 4130 HLI)

Pvte D S McKay S/27473 (b Barony Lanark, e Glasgow)

Pvte A Macneil S/4936 (b Stornoway Lewis, e Stornoway)

Pvte P Skene S/14390 (b Tarland Aberdeen, e Aberdeen)

Pvte G M watt S/27639 (b Alves Elgin, Moray, e Inverness)

25 Oct 18 - DOW

Cpl J W Omand 242129 (NB. He was a MM holder -b Hoy Orkney, e Stromness, Orkney)

21 Oct - KIA

Pvte G H Smith 200718 (b Salford Lancs, e Manchester)

21 Oct - DOW

20 Oct - KIA

Pvte W McPhee S/27682 (b Aran Bute, e Glasgow)

I believe (from the CWGC info) that they would all have been buried at battlefield locations and later concentrated at Harlebeke after the war.

Sorry I cannot help with the personal details of these men, I would like to get around to it one day!

Welcome to the forum

Will you please explain who "we" refers to and what sort of archive are you planning?

Hi Myrtle,

"We" are me - and I have had an interest in Harlebeke for many years as my Uncle is buried there (2nd Lt A.J.A. Hutchins - Royal Sussex) and our family have been visiting him regularly. Another part of "we" is a local Harlebeke man who was born locally and includes the Cemetery in his overall interest in the Great War as it affected his town and the surrounding area. He lodges his information in the local Harlebeke Historical Society. My info is kept here at home for the present. Eventually perhaps the IWM would like it.

Hi Marc

I shall be pleased to have your list of the men of Marke who were moved to Harlebeke in the 1920s, and any other information you may have of the Harlebeke men.

Sorry I have taken time to reply to you, but I have had problems with my computer - hopefully now sorted out.

Thanks Annette,

All of the men in Harlebeke have been moved there from other places, (German Cemeteries, isolated graves, local Churchyards etc) apart from the few who were buried when the Cemetery began in 1914. It was closed after the Germans went through and they did not use it themselves. More land was given at the end of the war and this is when IWGC "concentrated" the rest of the men there.

This is a list of the places where the came from although we think it is not quite complete...

Perhaps you can decide which are the possibilities for your Thomas Harold Smith.

The CWGC are working on a project to scan all these into a new database which will give all the details of previous burial sites for all the Concentration Cemeteries - and they are hoping to have it completed in about 3 years - Three cheers for the CWGC as always.

Hi Jacksmum

The CWGC are working on a project to scan all these into a new database which will give all the details of previous burial sites for all the Concentration Cemeteries

That good news, and look forward to that. Thanks for your list of cemeteries concentrated in Harlebeke, still not sure which Pte. Smith would have been in, so roll on the time when the CWGC finish their project.

Hi Adrian

Rugby is in Warwickshire

Thanks, I do know this but just copy the info. that is recorded in Soldiers Died, I will put it right in my database.

We are attempting to make an Archive of all the men buried in Harlebeke New British Cemetery. Can you help? We are looking for biographical details, photos, in fact any information. There will be an Archive here in the UK and also one in Harlebeke itself.

Any information will be helpful, as even "hearsay" can send us in the right direction.

My great uncle is buried in Harlebeke. I have a photo of him, the letter from war office regarding both his death and the letter to say a memorial is to be erected in Harlebeke. I have his War Medals record and actually have his medals. He is a Private Robert MacDonald from the Cameron Highlanders. I am brand new to teh forum so what is the best way to send you attachments.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Ian,

Welcome to the Forum !

Just for your information ... Robert McDonald (that's how CWGC and SDGW spell the name), 223013, born Maxwelltown Kirkcudbrightshire, enlisted Edinburgh, residence Dumfries-Shire, was one of the 14 men of his battalion (5th Cameron Highlanders) who fell that day (12 KIA, 2 Died of Wounds).

I'm sure Jacksmum will reply and tell you how to send her the photo. But as I happen to know she is in the middle of a busy period right now ... :)

--

Lieutenant Hugo Bell Fisher - died 23/11/1917

2nd Royal Munster Fusiliers

Hugo was born on 5th April 1897, the only son of Dr. Hugh Fisher and Elizabeth Bell Fisher of 4 College Gardens, Belfast. After Inst, he attending Queen’s University Belfast, where he was a member of the Officer Training Corps.

Hugo was reported as being missing on 10th November 1917, the last day of the Passchendaele campaign, and later discovered to have been taken prisoner. The 2nd Royal Muster Fusiliers were taking part in the 1st Division attack on the Goudberg Ridge. They lost over 400 men that day, in which, for a time, they withheld a German counterattack on a position called Void Farm by throwing mudballs at them. The Germans mistook them for bombs and fell back.

Private Kennedy of the 2nd Royal Munster Fusiliers reported -

“I am in “C” Company, No 11 Platoon. Soon after passing the first German lines of trenches right down in the valley, I saw 2nd Lt Fisher lying on the ground on his face with his hands spread out. I passed him and went on.”

Lance Corporal Milos wrote -

“I saw Lt Fisher being hit in the stomach. He fell in his face in the mud and did not stir again.”

Hugo’s mother received a letter from her son on 21st November, sent from Limburg, a clearing station for the wounded. She reported that “he writes very badly that he is feverish and wounded in the left foot.”

Hugo died on 23rd November 1917, at the age of 20, in a German field hospital in Beveren, Belgium, from a shell splinter wound to his left thigh. He was originally buried in the Military Cemetery at Beveren, but was re-interred at Harlebeke New British Cemetery (ref. XI A 8), Flanders, Belgium.
