Mystery surrounding the whereabouts of thousands of soldiers killed in one of the bloodiest battles fought by the British Army could be revealed in a soldier's memoir. The location of the burial site has been lost for centuries, with only one intact skeleton found under a car park.

Gareth Glover, a military historian has discovered a book which he believes contains an eyewitness account of a mass grave that was used to inter 7,000 British and allied corpses.
