I made this part of the HLI for my dear friend Alastair Dutch OBE.

In memory of his uncle

- Private 14246910, Alastair Hardy -

Died just before the end (2 MAY '45 IN Hohenhorn, killed by a sniper) of WW2

There are several links to see this story:

Link 1 The book, Campaign in Europe. With photo's of the maps.

Link 2 The photos of the HLI monument in France

Link 3 See the trail. Click in the menu on " 10 The Highland Light Infantry. As a part of the 15th Scottish Infantry Division/227th Infantry Brigade.

Link 4 The details know now about the 10 HLI

Link 5 And select the date and city's from the story. You will see who was near the 10 HLI

More photo's will follow from the book

This website is made by me Fred Vogels (Back to Normandy)  Building the story of D-Day.

I hope you enjoy.

3rd Battle of Gaza 1917 PDF Print E-mail

I would be interested to hear from anyone who had an ancestor who fought with the HLI in the 3rd Battle of Gaza in 1917. I have never met anyone  amongst my friends and acqaintances who was even vaguely aware of this part of WW1! (The war to them was all about the trenches in France). My grandfather was just an ordinary man with a wife and two children from Ingram Street in Glasgow - Nathaniel McFarlane - and he died in this battle and is buried in the War Grave Cemetery in Gaza. This part of the war never seems to receive any coverage in film, books or television and it is as if my grandfather and his comrades' deaths were totally unimportant and forgotten. What a senseless waste. He left my Mum without a father and her children including me , without a Grandfather - for what - so 'Jerusalem could be given back for a Christmas present'!!! And that land is still no better off - I can't even visit my g father's grave as it is in the most dangerous place in the world.

I have read information on the three battles in Palestine, but I would love to know more details about where my grandfather along with his fellow soldiers trained, how and when they actually travelled to Gaza (and if he fought in other theatres of war before Palestine).
