Red Cross Files: Bullecourt

22nd-battalionThe following 173 men of the 22nd Battalion were killed during the Spring 1917 Arras campaign, predominately at the Second Battle of Bullecourt on 3rd May 1917. Many of the men have WW1 Red Cross Files for the Wounded and Missing – click on the links to learn more of their fate, often from first hand accounts from their comrades.

One of the original Bullecourt missing was 4802 Sgt J.White. In 1994 a local farmer whilst ploughing across the Bullecourt battlefield came across the remains of John White, who was then later laid to rest in the Queant Road Cemetery with full military honours and in the presence of his daughter.
