Hi Jan,
It appears you have an interesting project and I wish you luck.
I can see there are three 7th Bttn Manchester Regiment casualties at Sittard.  I suggest you provide a brief summary on each man, with details that you know.  Forum members may then be able to provide some details for you.
Welcome to the forum
