Hello there, rather an arcane query I'm afraid. At the back of the book, among the list of units which participated in the 1914 truce, is included 87th Battery Royal Field Artillery. There appears to be no reference in the book to the (presumably) documentary source of this information. I wonder if you could enlighten me? I would like to follow the source up if possible, the reason for my interest being that my grandfather was a Gunner in 87th Battery in 1914. He always claimed that he took part in The Truce and 'played football with The Hun' on Christmas Day.
All the best,
