22nd Battalion info
« on: October 21, 2010, 10:39:32 AM »
Here is a website dedicated to Lt. W E Gomersall, 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. Hopefully, he's managed to contact the living relatives.
