William Samuel's Story

The information given to me by the regimental museum was that of the day he died, may the 10th 1915. at festubert. He being the only man lost that day. I am only sorry that I did not find this information to tell my father before he died, his father was killed when he was only 5 years old his mother remarried, and never spoke of his father.
