  1. So after nearly finishing my research into my Grandfather's service with 112th Wessex RA (still awaiting his service records) I am turning my attention to his cousin who served in the 5 DCLI. After some basic searches I found the below, I was wondering if anyone had more information on casualty lists. He couldn't have been wounded badly as he was mentioned in dispatches (what I assume to be) around the 5th August on a assault at a Village near Bremoy.
