A Lancashire Fusilier by Proxy

Today, Minden Day, it is fitting to remember 2nd Lieutenant Cecil Henry Moffatt of the 2/5th LF, who died on his 20th birthday, 1st August 1916, soon after his unit's arrival in the Somme area. He died, tragically, not in action, but as a result of one of his men accidentally discharging his weapon while cleaning it. He is buried at Le Neuville British Cemetery, Corbie, reference I.E.46. His brother, Stanley Lieslie Moffatt, also of the 2/5th LF, died 13 days later.
