Hope somebody can help

Harry Tomlinson Birkett according to CWGC died on 1/7/1916, however, the school Magazine, The Retfordian, has his date of death being the 7th August 1916.

I have a tendency to the 1st July as the 10th Lincolns were involved heavily at La Boiselle.

Thanks in anticipation

SDGW has him as killed on the 1st of July, this is confirmed in the book "Soldiers Killed on the First Day of the Somme" which simply lists all those killed on that day

Hope this helps clear it up
