While nothing is known on the fate of the solder, there is more to the story of  the photographer. Sadly, he lost his life in France in July 1918 and his body was never recovered.

Because of his marriage to a German lady, no members of his family would have anything to do with him or talk about him, It is only later, after CWGC added his name to the Debt of Roll Of Honour at Maindenhead in 2010, that a member of the family was able to find out his service number and obtain a copy of his service record.
