    Hello everyone, I will forward you a question asked by Robert Curtis on the 11th Armoured Facebook group:
    Robert Curtis

    Brigadier Roscoe Harveys Batman, Trooper Charles William Bullock 7918820, 24th Lancers, seconded to HQ 29th Armoured Brigade. According to CWGC record died 11-9-44 aged 35yrs. Appears in Taurus Pursuant Roll of Honour as dying 5-9-44 at Amiens. A Casualty card confirms wounded 4-9-44 and placed into a casualty clearing station. The CWGC Grave Concentration Reprt Form shows him dying on 11-9-44 and originally being buried at Dury Les Amiens on the outskirts of Amiens. He was reburied on 27-6-46 at St. Sever Cemetary, Rouen. The family believe Charles was shot by a sniper while setting up a headquarters at a chateau. Before the war Charles was a flat racing jockey. Brigadier Harvey was always connected to horses, especially after the war. Information and photograph supplied by Nick Bullock, the Grandson of Charles. Can anyone add any further information about the day Charles was wounded? - perhaps in HQ 29th Armoured Brigade War Diary - does anyone have access? (around 4-9-44 period)
