9th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment)
Claude H B James Mackintosh went to France on 26 June 1915 and joined 1/7th battalion. At some point he joined the 9th Battalion and was renumbered 265578. The final battle was on 4 November 1918 and after taking Sebourg the men pushed forward to the hills beyond. Without artillery support, they moved forward carefully but encountered heavy machine gun fire. Despite this the men fought tenaciously and with the help of two 4.5 howitzers firing over open sights gained 4000 metres of ground. Twenty eight gallantry awards were won by the battalion that day. It cost the unit over 50 men dead and many wounded. Claude died of wounds. Sebourg British Military Cemetery Grave Reference: A 23 John Morse
