From Meg Swann:

103 years ago today, 19/08/1916, our family lost Corporal William Quade SN 1155, 57th Bn. I was so pleased to fulfil a 50 year promise to my beautiful grandfather that I would one day find and visit him, and that I did in June. He was dearly loved, always remembered and will never be forgotten RIP.
