Thanks go to Chester Potts Chairman Northumberland Area for letting us know about this. Shame we were not told about it by our own ' sources '.
Private Frederick Foskett of the 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers was killed with 6 of his comrades in October 1914. He had no known grave until a local Belgian found several bodies in a field over 10 years ago. They were buried as unknowns at Prowse Point cemetery but through a DNA match Foskett was identified and his family traced. Today we held a ceremony to rededicate his grave. 8 members of his family were in attendance. A magnificent ending for them all. We gave them Minden roses as a keepsake. See the photo on link below.
