Edwin, I am not aware of the precise circumstances of your death, nor what caused it, but, as a former soldier in the 1st Lincolns myself, doing my National Service in 1950, I am pleased to be given this opportunity to salute you as a brave young soldier who lost his life in the service of his country. You were laid to rest with 7 other members of our regiment in Bienvillers Military Cemetery, which is about ten miles south-west of Arras in the Pas de Calais. I understand that some graves were moved in 1922-24 from the battlefields of the Ancre, so I do not know which of our Lincoln units you were serving in when you lost your life, nor exactly where the fighting was at that time.  Nevertheless, I trust that the Guard of Honour at your graveside fired the traditional salute to a fallen comrade. In addition to your gravestone at Bienvillers I trust that you were also commemorated on your home town memorial. My sympathy to your father and other relatives who mourned your sacrifice.  Rest in Peace.  Harry.  

Henry Harrison
