I'm in the process of ordering copies of the war diary for the 19th between June 16th and July 16th 1916 to cover the build up to and the attack on Mametz Wood during the Somme offensive. If there's anything there of interest I will let you know when it arrives. I've recently bought a casualty plaque to a lad of the 19th RWF died from wounds received in the attack on Mametz Wood. I believe they were a service battalion if I'm correct?
