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.
Cpl. Knightley Trevor Barlow MID.
British Army London Regiment 1/6th Btn.
My grandfather served with the Cast Iron Sixth throughout WW1. He wrote an account (not very detailed) in 1973 which gives snippets of information and has inspired me to find out more. He was gassed in August 1918 and was given a medical discharge in October 1918.
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.
