Title: 22nd Battalion info
Post by: grimmy on October 21, 2010, 10:39:32 AM
Here is a website dedicated to Lt. W E Gomersall (http://www.gomersall.net.au/UncleWilliam/Default.htm), 22nd Bn.

Amongst some fascinating personal items are his letters home, dated from November 1915 until 30-6-1916 (the day before he was kia), which practically amount to a war diary.

Well worth a visit.

I've been contacted by the son of Captain Cowan, who wrote the letter to the Gomersall family (http://themanchesters.org/forum/index.php?topic=5229.0). Hopefully, he's managed to contact the living relatives.

.....he did manage to contact the relatives. There is now a photo of Captain Cowan on the site.
