Richard Arnold and others are painstakingly researching the identities of our friends in the 3rd Brigade for both the 25th and 4th Divisions, including the 1st of the 14th,  who died in the line of duty.  They have graciously allowed us to post a memorial to the men of 1/14th on our site.  They continue to need your help in identifying the units of those they find from the 3rd Brigade in their research.  If you can identify the unit of anyone in their list, you will be able to contact Dick Arnold directly from their website. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated by all.  

Point of Contact for this project is:
