65 Howitzer Battery, Royal Field Artillery, were part of 5th Division in December 1914, holding the line, just to the south of Ypres. Four of their number , three of them from London, were killed on 7th December. As yet we do not have any details but it is most likely that the Battery was hit by German artillery.
