Current Information:

Born-Battersea

Berles-au-Bois Churchyard, France

On 30th June, 1916, 10th Royal Fusiliers of 111 Brigade, 37th Division moved into the front line at Berles-au-Bois, just to the north of the front attacked by the British Army on the following day when the Battle of the Somme began. Although there was no attack in this sector of the front line on 1st July, there was certainly an increase in shelling and this was most likely to be the cause of the death of Francis Penfold, who was killed on 4th July, 1916.
