Buried at Sea



“Behind that long and lonely trenched line
To which men come and go, where brave men die,
There is a yet unmarked and unknown shrine,
A broken plot, a soldier’s cemetery…”

From A Soldier’s Cemetery by Sgt John William Streets, 12th Battalion Yorks and Lancaster Regiment, killed on 1st July 1916 the first day of The battle of the Somme.   Believed to be buried in Euston Road Cemetery, Colinchamps, France.
