One hundred years ago today, on 3 September 1916, my grandmother’s dear brother, Arthur James Tester, died in action at The Somme. Arthur, who was 18 years of age is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme Battlefields.

For more detail of Arthur’s brief life and service see the article on the Smeed page of this website.
