One Thousand Days with the AIF

 

Made a statement relating to the death of Sgt L C Cavell 885 of Ascot Vale,  who was killed at Lignacourt on 9/4/1917.

Gunner J H Grainger 1068, also of Ascot Vale, was killed in the same incident.

 

Gunner Frederick Sydney Loch also embarked on the Shropshire with the 2nd Field Artillery Battalion, and wrote an account of it published as Straits Impregnable by Sydney de Lough during the war, though initially disguising it as a novel.  An annotated version of Loch's book has been published by Susanna de Vries, and now called  To Hell and Back.
