My 23 year old Uncle Walter Speight having what seems to be a wash on the battle fields of France! B Company 6th platoon 3 section Kings own Yorkshire Light infantry (K.O.Y.L.I.) Sadly Walter Speight was killed soon after this photograph was taken he died of wounds on the 10th June 1917. I have his Soldiers own Diary which is a wonderfully preserved document of his short lived army career.

He was a Tank driver and received the Burma Star for his bravery in the “forgotten army” He died in 1997 but will will never be forgotten. Ancestry member: johnwood1763 john.wood@gmx.co.uk
