Another clue follows in the morning if no-one gets the right name by then.

CLUE 1

I was born in Bristol in 1890, to parents Barnett and Annie.

Not 2/Lt. A Rowland Hartley.

My CWGC gravestone is almost unique - there is only one more like it in the country in which I am buried.

Next clue at 7.15 p.m.

CLIE 3

I'm buried in a cemetery not far from Ypres. It isn't the biggest cemetery in the area, but almost.

Next Clue - 8.00 p.m.

Clue 4

On the date of my death, 21st August, 1917, I was working as usual at a Casualty Clearing Station, which was sometimes shelled. On this day, a shell landed and I was wounded by the burst, dying soon afterwards.

Last clue at 8.45 p.m. Identity revealed at 9.15 p.m. unless someone gets it first.

The nurse killed at Brandhoek, dammit I can't find her name.

FINAL CLUE

I was buried the day after I was killed and my grave receives many visitors. Some, I suppose, are just curious to see the grave of one woman buried among 10,750 men.

ID to be revealed at 9.15 p.m. unless someone gets it first.

Correct! Well done Marina. A couple of other Pals nearly got there, but the name's the thing.

Staff Nurse Nellie Spindler, Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service - buried at Lijssenthoek and one of only two female casualties of the Great War buried in Belgium.

I'll try and think of another one for next weekend unless someone else can come up with one before then. The hard part is working out the clues so that Google won't be any help at all!

Thought you lived not far from me, Bernard - down the A6? Not exactly rural, our manor.

And, I've just spotted your "signature" - we're not related are we?
