Pte Aitken Millar Wilson

From In Search of Charles Albert Stokes DCM

Private Aitken Millar Wilson from Ballarat, Victoria. Killed in action on 5th August 1916 on Pozieres Ridge. Private Wilson along with Sergeant's Shields and Coltman were all part of a bombing party conducting a raid on OG1 trench. Private Wilson was carrying a bag of Mills Grenades when a shell has exploded nearby killing them all. Private Wilson now lays in Courcelette Cemetery, not far from where he was killed. When Naomi and I return to the battlefields we always return to Courcelette Cemetery to visit Private Wilson reminding him that he has not been forgotten.
