The German Press...

My great uncle, Walter, was fatally wounded while fighting near Arras with the Northumberland Fusiliers on 3 May 1917; he died a few days later in a German Field Hospital after being cared for by a Professor Mueller, Dr Schutinger and Sister Erma respectively. It is only recently we discovered that there is no known grave; his remains lost in the fog of war as so often can be the case. But on this walk, I wanted to see if it would be possible to connect with the relatives of those who tried to help him - and I still hope this may be the case; the German newspapers have kindly lent their support.
