At rest with Bert Windlow

Both George Dunner and Robert "Bert" Windlow were killed in their gun pit when an enemey shell struck their position.
Red Cross records record both as succumbing to wounds and being buried at the Battalion Aide Station at Ginchy village.
Alas frequent battles over the Ginchy area saw their graves decimated and coud no longer be identified.
