Meine Geschichte

On the 22nd of October, at 5.30 a.m., the artillery of the 5th Battalion of the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry bombarded the enemy’s front line trenches and wire. At 6 a.m. the enemy dropped heavy barrage in front and rear of the Battalion’s trenches. This continued for over an hour. During the day, the Battalion’s artillery bombarded Polderhoek Chateau, resulting in several direct hits. During the night of the 22nd of October, the enemy’s artillery was very active, and a considerable number of shells fell near Battalion Headquarters. It was during the fighting on the 22nd of October that Lance Corporal Herbert Allman was killed in action. He was buried at J.20.b.90.85.. Later, he was reburied at Zantvoorde British Cemetery.
