Special Post - Acting Corporal David Albert Bryant

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.
