I am sorry that I do not know your Christian name, which is how I like to address my former comrades in the regiment. I am not aware of the precise circumstances of your death, nor what caused it, but, as a former soldier in the 1st Warwicks myself, doing my National Service in 1950-51, although sad to read of your sacrifice, I am pleased to be given this opportunity to salute you as a brave soldier who lost his life in the service of his country during the later fighting on the Somme front 1917-1918. You were laid to rest in Rocquigny Equancourt Road British Cemetery, Manancourt, with 24 others from our regiment.  I can but quote the memorial hymn again, “All you had hoped for, all you had you gave to save mankind – yourself you scorned to save”. I trust that the Guard of Honour at your graveside fired the traditional salute to a fallen comrade and that you were also commemorated on your home town war memorial. You are also remembered every year at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, when the parade is at the attention while the Queen’s Colour and the National Standard are dipped in salute as the Last Post is sounded.  I offer my sympathy to your relatives and friends who mourned your sacrifice.  Rest in Peace.  Harry.
