I'm looking for more information about JOHN LYNN who got a VC at Ypres in may 1915.
Can somebody help me overthere?
He should been born there (at Forrest Hill)around 1887. Where did he lived? What was he doing before the War? Is there somebody of his family ?
All bits and pieces are more than welcome!
Thanks for all the troubles and efforts!
