Hello I am current researching my Grandfather WW1 journey. He was with the 14th Battalion at Gallipoli and went on to the Western Front. On 20/01/1917 Join Div Signalling Sectional La Chausse France I wish to gain information on the type of equipment and this duties. During the Messines battle June 1917 he ended up as a Runner for which he was awarded the Military Medal I am guessing this was probably due to communications being damaged and urgent messages were required between FOO & Headquarters. I work Mon-Friday 8.30 - 5pm - If possible would like to visit the museum any other time I would be appreciated. Regards Anne
