Hermies Hill British Cemetery, Hermies, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Apr 15, 2021

Hermies was seized on the morning of the 9th April 1917, by a surprise attack of the 2nd and 3rd Australian Infantry Battalions. It was held against the advancing Germans on the 22nd March 1918, by the 17th Division, but evacuated on the following day; and it was retaken in September 1918.

It was later “adopted”, with Havrincourt, by the County Borough of Huddersfield. The cemetery was begun in November 1917, and carried on by fighting units until March 1918, and further graves were added in the following September. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
