WARLENCOURT BRITISH CEMETERY

Pas-de-Calais, France

W.J.H. SPENCE

Grave I.D.32.

Killed in action on the 12th October 1916.

On the 12th October 1916, the 2nd and 4th S.A.I. attacked Snag and Tail Trenches. The assault died away because of machine guns nests, placed well back in prepared positions, which caught the attacking waves at long range.

Declared missing in action, his body was found after the war.
