      'Private H. P. Hallam, Sherwood Foresters, elder son of Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Hallam, of Pilsley, has been missing since July 7th. A North Wingfield soldier had sent word home that Private Hallam was wounded, but no confirmation of the statement was forth coming. Prior to enlisting he worked for the Hasland Co-operative Society, and was well known both at Hasland and Grassmoor He has been wounded twice, and returned to France on Whit-Thursday. He is twenty three years of age, and unmarried.'

    • It sounds like they were bombed heavily on the 7th July 1916 and this is where possibly Herbert Hallam was fatally wounded: Quote "shelling in the valley became intense and several casualties both to officers and men were incurred ... during the shelling 4 lewis guns were either buried or destroyed but subsequently two of these were recovered".
      I have copy of the 10th Battalion War diaries.
