online resource
posted on 2024-01-11, 15:27 authored by Lest We Forget Project Team

The pocket bible belonging to Private Robert Stewart, my great-uncle. He served in the King's Own Scottish Borders and was killed in December 1916. He was buried near the causality clearing station.

As my grandmother could not afford to travel to his grave in France, I was the first family member to visit. Though I didn't know him, it was a very emotional experience. It was a small cemetery, I placed a small cross on his grave. When my grandmother died, the letters and objects relating to his service and death were passed to her grandson, my son.
