S/9024 Acting Corporal D A Bryant of the 1st Rifles Brigade. He died on the first day of the battle of the Somme 1/7/1916.
His body was never identified and his name appears on the Thiepval memorial on the Somme. He was a sniper in the regiment, and believed to have been on or near Redan Ridge on that day.
On my BBBR pilgrimage earlier this year we visited Thiepval and I laid this cross at the memorial.
