Meine Geschichte

Private Stanley Dale was part of the 1/4th Battalion Princess Charlotte of Wales’s (Royal Berkshire Regiment), 145th Brigade, 48th (South Midland) Division.

On the 29th of September 1917 the Battalion relieved the 1/5th Glosters in the right subsector of the front line, east of St. Julien. The battalion headquarters and aid post were moved to the village of St. Julien (C11. d. 9.3. and C18 a. 1.9. respectively). On the 1st of October the front line posts were moved forward 50 to 100 yards (ca 45 to 90 meters). During the final days of September and at the beginning of October the German artillery was described as ‘normal’.

Private Stanley Dale was killed while holding the front line on the 2nd of October 1917. He was most likely killed by artillery fire and buried where he fell. His body was recovered after the war and reburied at Tyne Cot Cemetery.
