Footnote

Frederick Oliver Charles Bambridge, who was born at West Norwood, Surrey, was killed in action on the Somme on 13 July 1916, while serving in ‘B’ Company, 10th (Stockbrokers) Battalion, Royal Fusiliers.

His brother, Rupert Charles Bambridge, was a much decorated Captain in the same Battalion, being the holder of the D.S.O., M.C. and M.M. Sadly, he too was killed in action, in May 1918.

Frederick was buried in the Albert Communal Cemetery Extension; photographs of his headstone are included.
