Two first world war soldiers taken from their families and comrades almost 100 years ago, have been interred with full military honours at Bullecourt, in Northern France.

7359 Private Christopher Doulgas Elphick, Honourable Artillery Company

He was the son of Christopher and Louisa Elphick, of 28, Hillsboro Rd., Dulwich, London; husband of Hilda Kate Elphick, of 68, Garden Avenue, Mitcham, Surrey.

The two other soldiers they were found with have yet to be identified, but hopefully they soon can, and the families can know where there relatives fell and are buried.

I will be researching these two men and hope to post a full biography later this week.
