William was Carole's Grandmother's Brother

William was my grandmother's brother, he died of wounds serving in ww1, just on the outside of Ypres. I have his papers and records and medals,
plus cards he sent home to my nan just before he was called to the front.  He was a regular soldier in the KOYLI and was recalled from Singapore, and sailed home via Gibraltar. The cards said to expect him for Christmas Dinner, but he never arrived as he was sent to the front immediately,
I have his photo in his uniform he was a very handsome man, and my Nan loved him dearly. I paid her the best way I could by visiting his grave in Ramparts cemetery in Ypes where he is buried, and laying a dozen white Roses, for all the years she had missed her beloved brother.
