Hi Pals
I've just bought a medal pair to 25956 pte John Hyde Manchester Regiment and was looking through his service papers on ancestry, it has him as Reported missing then confirmed POW 14th March 1917, Repatriated 22nd December 1918.

Has anyone any thoughts on how he became captured? A night raid?

Hope this is the right place to put this?

Regards

Dave

hiya dave.
ime not sure if it was a raid,the casualties seem to be a bit heavy for a night raid.
27 men were killed and one died as a POW on this date[no officers] 12 are buried in gommecourt No2 cemetery,11 are still missing and 2 are buried in gommecourt wood new cemetery.
the area was in allied hands around this time,gommecourt village+wood,were captured by the 56th[london]+46th[north midlands]divisions,on 27th/28th feb

My last post was wrong.  8701 John Leach was not III Pln. 8706 J Leach was, but he is a different man!
Arthur Watts is correct as III Pln. A Company 17th Btn. 
Sorry for my confusion.

Two more Manchester Regt PoWs:

53799 Pte Arthur St Paul - confirmed in Hull Daily Mail of 7th Jan 1919 as returning from PoW camp in germany. Believed to be from Hull. Apart from this I know absolutely nothing else about him, not even his battalion. Any other details would be much appreciated.

Mack,
Thank you very much for this, much appreciated.
Guess he was captured at the beginning of the German 1918 spring offensive.
Do you know which battalion he was in?
Best wishes.
