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.
Pte. Frederick George Wells MM.
British Army London Regiment 1/15th Btn.
I believe my grandfather Frederick Wells was at Messines, he was with the 1/15th Btn. from the beginning of the war, and won the Military Medal at some point, although I'm not sure for what action. He was certainly in the Battle of Amiens in 1918, and is mentioned in Rowland Fielding's book "War Letters to a Wife". I'd be very grateful if anyone could suggest any other relevant books covering his unit's service.
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.
