    Hello all,

    Have a lsit of missing men from 4 OBLI following Cassell

    There are some acronyms I dont recognise - by some names are the letters UP followed by a number ie UP82.

    Some of these men are deceased, some are not.

    Also, the term Q57 - was this a form for men KIA?

    there may be a photo here.....

    The chap of interest is l/cpl Caswell, his name has 'death a....' next to it.

    Looks like either accp or ack

    This is the chap in oye-plage - from sources so far I think he died at Cassel , on the 28th, possibly just prior to them spearheading the breakout, or maybe even during the breakout itself, which may explain his interment at oye-plage - however...his dod being 28th May is before the breakout started.
