As we proceed through the years 2014 to 2018, I intend to publish the names of the fallen from Bishopthorpe in both Link and Bishopthorpe dot net in the month which marked the centenary of their deaths. These two Bishopthorpe men died just a hundred years ago on the same day, but with different units, during the Battle of Passchedaele.
Private, No. 41868, 10th Battalion, Northumberland Fusiliers.
Missing, presumed killed in action 20 September, 1917, while participating in an attack during the Third Battle of Ypres. He was 39 years of age.
He is commemorated on Tyne Cot Cemetery Memorial to the Missing, Panel 21.
FUGUEL, Mark Walter
Private, No. 27536, 10th Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment.
Killed in action, on 20 September, 1917, aged 38, near Ypres in Belgium.
Buried in Grave No. LXVII. C. 10, Tyne Cot Cemetery, Ypres, Belgium.
As well as spending a few moments thinking of these men and their families, I hope that you find the details of some interest.
