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. Wesley Costen
British Army Northamptonshire Regiment 7th Btn. D Co.
Wesley Costen served with D company of the 7th Northamptonshire Btn and arrived in France on 16 December 1916. He was a corporal at the time of arriving in France and was married with one child (my Grandfather). He was gassed but never seriously wounded (from my limited research). He was transferred to the Sufolk Reg in March 1919 and stayed on in Germany as part of the occupation force. He died in 1972 from a chest infection.I am continuing to research his service. Regards, Andrew Costen
