Pte G Elsey (left) had been reported missing after the charge made by the 1/4th Lincolnshire Territorials on October 13. His brother was in the same regiment and was reported as being wounded in the leg. He wrote home to family from his hospital bed. However, we understand Pte H Elsey subsequently died.
