Complément d'informations

Pte. James Jamieson was part of the 8th Bn. Seaforth Highlanders (44th Brigade, 15th Division). On 22 August 1917 the 15th Division took part in an attack in the Battle of Passchendaele. During the night the 44th and 45th Brigade took op their assembly positions wit the 8th Seaforths on the right and 7th Cameron Highlanders on the left of the 44th Brigade. At Zero hour, 4.45 AM the barrage opened and troops advanced to the assault, which was met with heavy machine gun fire. The Seaforths were able to reach the line Beck House – Iberian, but the fortified German positions could not be taken. The Camerons reached the Southern slope of Hill 35. Machine gun fire forced the Seaforths back to their original position.
After the war the remains of Pte Jamieson where found near Bostin Farm (D.20.d.70.30) and he was reburied at Tyne Cot Cemetery, where he is still remembered today.
