Remembered Today:

Hi Chaps, More help urgently requested for another soldier,


Recommended Posts

You may remember so many of you helped me a few weeks ago. I am a novice researcher with the Orange Lilies Project.  We are researching soldiers to form individual profiles which will preserve their memory indefinitely at The Keep in Brighton.  IThe project ends in June and I am concerned  that this  new soldier's memory  will be ignored if I don't collect  more details about him. I have been given a new soldier but hardly any details. 


Charles Edward Bell. ( no rank) Royal Sussex Regiment 13 th Batalian.Died 1916 3 Sep. Resided at 15 Elm Grove Brighton. Fought at Beaumont Hemal.

I am completely stuck ! I can't find him on 1901 or 1911 census, or a Forces Record or on a Roll of honour!  He must have a connection with The Battle of Boar's Head as this is the projects focus and his name wouldn't have been handed to me, if this was not the case!

Thank you so much - if anyone can help again.








Please will you offer your expertise so
