Hello Stuart. I am a grandson of the above couple, and would like to correct some of your information on your site about them. Minnie was born 22/11/1895. Died at Taree 19/3/1984. Sidney paul Ravell born 4/11/1898. Died at Forster 22/6/1956. Both cremated at Beresfield. I don't have much information on the first Ravells to Forster, and wonder if you have more. Thanks Gary Hayes

Polygon Wood

The Battle of Polygon Wood, 26 September - 3 October 1917

Plumer's successful first short 'step' across the Gheluvelt Plateau provoked fierce German reprisals between 21-25 September: near continuous artillery fire and desperate counter-attacks. These failed to disrupt preparations for the next phase of Second Army's methodical advance up the Plateau planned for 26 September. Arrangements for the new battle, in continuing good weather, repeated the pattern adopted for the Menin Road Ridge: British artillery barrages swept the German positions and sought out German batteries; fresh assault troops entered the frontline.

Plumer's aim to advance his line another 1,200 yards (and keep up the momentum of the general offensive) required I Anzac Corps to secure the key objective: the capture of Polygon Wood. This main assault would be supported (on the right) by 33rd Division and (on the left) with simultaneous attacks by Fifth Army's 3rd and 59th Divisions towards Zonnebeke and Hill 40. The infantry attacked at 5.50am on Wednesday 26 September on a frontage of near five miles amidst the clamour of an immense protective bombardment. Smoke and dust mixed with heavy ground mist made visibility poor, but the leading waves, keeping close to the barrage quickly overran dazed defenders in the forward zones. Though 5th Australian Division's progress was compromised by derangements in 33rd Division's support, I Anzac Corps first objectives were rapidly gained; pillboxes and strongpoints were subdued and the important 'Butte' position captured; the final objective, just beyond the eastern edge of the wood, was secured by 9.45am.

Despite difficulties at the southern and northern extremities of the wider fighting line, by mid-morning most objectives had been gained. Clear weather after midday assisted observation of the predicted German counter-attacks which were repelled by precise British barrages and concentrated rifle and machine-gun fire, causing heavy German casualties.

Burial of a sonJohn Herbert “Jack” RAVELL
after September 26, 1917 (Age 60)
Address: Plot 34, Row E, Grave 14
Cemetery: New Irish Farm Cemetery
Note:

It appears he was buried in the field of action and subsequently his body was exhumed and reburied in the New Irish Cemetery.

Named after a farm which stood nearby, the cemetery was begun in August 1917 and continued in use until November of that year, it was then further used in April and May of 1918. At the armistice the cemetery contained just 73 burials in three irregular rows, these can now be found as part of Plot 1. Its location then made it an ideal cemetery to be enlarged and 4,500 graves were brought in from the surrounding battlefields and small isolated cemeteries.

I am the grand daughter of Henry Charles Ravell and Vera Clemence Coaldrake and have noticed that you have my grandfathers year of death as 1974 aged 86. He actually passed away in 1978 or 1979. I'm leaning more towards 1979 as I recall he was 91 at the time. Also not mentioned are their other children, Gwendoline Beauchamp Ravell, Shirley Beauchamp Ravell and my father William George Beauchamp Ravell (b. 12/9/1925 - d. 24/9/1973 aged 48). Vera did pass away in 1974. She was already ill with cancer when my father died and only survived him by a few months. My aunty Shirley is still living and as far as I know Gwen is also still alive but I don't know for sure. Regards Ruth Lievesley (nee Ravell)
