Meine Geschichte

Second Lieutenant George Addis ADAMSON ( 6th Bn. King's Own Scottish Borderers (K.O.S.B.), 27th Brigade, 9th Division ) was killed in action on the 12th of October 1917, the First Battle of Passchendaele. The 9th division was located near the left bank of the Lekkerboterbeek, south of Poelcapelle. The 9th Division attacked with one brigade, the 26th brigade. The objective allotted to the 6th Bn. K.O.S.B. was the taking of the final objective. On the right a pill-box held up the whole advance, causing the 6th KOSB to become involved in the attack. After this delay they pushed on another 150 yards and consolidated a line of shell holes. In general it was quite a chaotic day and the whole division couldn't get further than the first objective. The advance had come to a halt 100 yards ( ca. 91 metres ) from there starting position. George Addis Adamson must have died during this attack between Poelkapelle and Wallemolen. He is remembered at the Tyne Cot Memorial.
