Missing VCs last resting place found

After all but one of his group was wounded in no man's land he rushed the first machine gun, bombing it with grenades to kill the gunner and capture the position.

Seeing off an enemy bomb attack he went up the trench and in a hand fight bayoneted a second gunner to take the next gun before bombing a third position killing five of the enemy.

After his own gun became clogged with mud he carried on to capture a fourth gun nest using enemy stick bombs.
A well deserved VC, I am in awe. I`m glad they found his resting place, as in most cases its a shame he wasn`t remembered for it when he was alive. 8)
A pity it too so long to get sorted, awesome deeds done by a brave man
