The Times newspaper - tracing MIA troops from NW France in the First World War
Posted by: K Burgess (ID *****5855) Date: April 24, 2009 at 02:22:38

The Times newspaper has obtained a list of British soldiers who fought in a series of battles in northwestern France in the First World War.

All of these men were declared Missing In Action and their bodies were never found.

We are looking to contact any relatives or descendants of these men to learn more about where they came from, what they did and who they were.

Do you recognise any of the names? Are they a grandfather, great-uncle or even great-great grandfather?

Please follow this link - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article6156586.ece - and take a look at the list of names.

If you recognise any of them, or even recognise an unusual name from your own genealogy or family tree, please get in touch at kaya.burgess@thetimes.co.uk
