Can anyone put this one right for me?

Any clues to the date of death? Any other details would be appreciated.

Anyone know what SDGW has for this man. Or his MIC!

Charles Lewis Tickner Private 4th Australian Infantry, died 6th/9th August 1915. Remembered with honour on the Lone Pine Memorial, Australia.

Thanks in advance.

Many thanks for that, cant see any info for a date of his death though? Missing between 6/9th = presumed Killed in action between these dates

Thanks for the papers.

Regards

Clearly, this man was missing from the 6th which was the date of the action of Lone Pine when the 4th took heavy casualties. I`d be happy to assume he was kia that day. Unless some Oz expert....... :(

On April 24th, 1916 (in France), the Australians held a Court of Enquiry into his disappearance, at which all available evidence and eye witness reports would have been considered. It concluded that he was killed in action between 6th and 9th August but did not specify a day - so that is where the CWGC dates come from.

You will never know which of those dates he actually died on and it would seem that all are equally possible. There is also a finite chance that he was still alive after the 9th. One thing is certain: the last time he was seen alive was on the 6th.
