I have tried to discover something about him but, apart from what is inscribed on the headstone, I have found out very little. I know his Christian name was Albert and he came from Staffordshire. He served in 30/46 Battery, 10 Field Regiment, Royal Artillery, but what he was doing in this part of France in 1939 I have failed to discover.
Aged only 24 at his death, he left a widow, Sarah Harris, living in Portobello, Staffordshire.
It would seem that somebody visits the grave on a fairly regular basis, presumably a family member.
