PRISONER OF WAR – RED CROSS FILES SUMMARY

9/06/1917- Statement from Pte. J. C. Forsyth, 6265, B Company No. 6 Platoon No. 11 Convalescent Camp Buchy, near Rouen France – ” Missing 11/04/1917.  We were at Bullecourt  on the 11th April 1917  and at 6.00 A. M. we went over the top to make an attack.  We took the first German line of trenches .  Sergeants Police  ( who was in charge of my Platoon ) and Tudor  ( who was Sergeant of my Section ) were with us.  The Germans counter-attacked and we had to retire  and when we were retiring I saw the 2 Sergeants still in their trench  and I am pretty certain they did not get away and must have been taken Prisoners. Neither of them so far as I know , were wounded. I never saw either of them again “.
