Thomas, I am not aware of the precise circumstances of your death, nor what caused it, but, as a former soldier in the 1st and 7th Battalions of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, and the 1st Battalion of the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment myself, doing my National Service in 1950-51 in relative peacetime conditions, although very sad to read about 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 on the Somme.  Rest in Peace. Harry.

Henry Harrison
