I am researching a group of pals, all were in the Army Service Corps and all died on 3 July 1917 and are buried side by side at Dranoutre Cemetery in Flanders. One is my great grandfather Plot II J 8 Charles Skingle Corporal T4/085280 Army Service Corps, 37th Division, Supply Column, (135 Company ASC ?). Volunteered April 1915. KIA 3 July 1917 (National Roll of Honour states at the Somme though this was in July 1916 and as he is buried in Flanders near Ieper it is more likely that he was killed during the 2nd phase of the Flanders Offensive), aged 41, Born 1877, Son of Mark Skingle, of Hatfield Broadoak, Essex; husband of Mary Jane Emily Skingle. see
National Roll of Honour gives address as 17 Leffern Road, Shepherds Bush, W12, family moved (possibly after his death) to 48A, Wardo Avenue, Fulham, London. Served in the South African Campaign (East African Mechanical Transport Corps?) My great grandfather. Part of the same detatchment? Possibly killed as a group by a shell
any further info would be very much appreciated
