Spr. Peter Ellery

British Army Royal Engineers 128th Field Company

from:Lyndhurst, Hampshire

(d.17 May 1917)

My Great, Great Uncle went to war with his brother Reginald. I know he served with 128th Field Coy RE at the time of his death which I believe places him in Flanders immediately before the Battle of Messines. I would like to find out how he died and where, although looking again at the date it was before the battle. I believe he was wounded four days before he died and was evacuated to the military field hospital near to the present day Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery where he is buried.
