  1. Ian – I am so glad that I found this post. I am currently engaged in the In Flanders Fields research fellowship in Ieper, Belgium, with the help of the Irish Embassy in Brussels. At this very moment I am texturising the archival record of second Lieutenant Martin Jestin. He was entrenched at “Peckham Farm” between “Suicide Road” and the N304 on the morning of 6 June 1917 – the day of the Battle of Messines. Soon after 03:10 on that morning he went over the top with the 16 Division of the Second Army (7th btn of the Royal Irish Fusiliers). I will contact you by telephone with the hope of getting more information from you. Many thanks. – Jason
