Harry Hackett

115th Siege Battery Royal Garrison Artillery

Died of wounds at the 2nd Main Corp Dressing Station on Friday 7th December 1917 aged 28.

Heavy Batteries RGA were equipped with heavy guns, sending large calibre high explosive shells in fairly flat trajectory fire. The usual armaments were 60 pounder (5 ich) guns, although some had obsolescent 5 inch howitzers. As British artillery tactics developed, the Heavy Batteries were most often employed in destroying or neutralising the enemy artillery, as well as putting destructive fire down on strongpoints, dumps, store, roads and railways behind enemy lines.

The 115th Siege Battery RGA was part of Y Group, British 65th Garrison Artillery Brigade.

Burial Place

Harry is buried in the St. Julien Dressing Station Cemetery (West Vlaanderen) Belgium.
