I’ll retweet it on the anniversary Thursday, Helen. There were two J Lesters who lost their lives on the First Day of The Somme. One was James Henry, so we can rule him out. The other was J Lester, but I note the photo has J F Lester. Was yours in the Somerset Light Infantry?
If so, there are no additional details like age and parents’ names. As a researcher of War Graves & War Memorials, I always “pained” when the detail on the attached documents is so minimal. Let’s see if we can pad that out for your Joe.
Lest we forget.
