PASSCHENDALE. My Grandfather James William Talman was killed at this place. His body was never found along with 55,0000 others whose names are on the Gate. His is on panel 33.

The Battle of Passchendaele, fought July 1917, is sometimes called the Third Battle of Ypres. For the soldiers who fought at Passchendaele.

I did have his medals but I am sure my son when at junior school swapped them for a bag of marbles

TT.
