We are currently seeking a sponsor for this website as it follows the progress of the excavations on the battlefield, with contributions from established historians and well known experts, as the team attempt to match the historical evidence and family history to the archaeology on the ground.
2nd Lt. James Chester Badgley
British Army Wiltshire Regiment 6th Btn. att. 58th Trench Mortar Bty.
(d.7th Jun 1917)
James Badgley was, I think, the name of the father of my Godmother. I have his details from the CWGC which state "6th Bn. Wiltshire Regt. attd. 58th Trench Mortar Bty." together with family details. He enlisted in the Canadian Contingent at Quebec in 1914. I have a photograph which again I think is him but only because we found it in her personal effects after her death.
If you know of anyone who served with this unit at the Battle of Messines, please complete the form below so that they can be remembered.
