Went into a quaint little church in Lambourn today(see photos thread)
One grave of this chap who lived in the village,after a bit of research i found out he died as POW of disease,again he was just a few months from coming home in time terms of WW1.
Incidently an odd coincidence(i think)is that it is the same sirname as last surviving WW1 soldier who passed on recently in Australia.
With the sun beating down,and a lovely peace it is a fitting resting place for this young chap who never got to see the lovely little church again in his life.

Dont think they were Gibbo,he was born near Worcester and the Choules on the grave comes from a fairly large Wiltshire/Berkshire/Oxfordshire group of the same name.
Not a name of which i have heard much of but dosn't seem to be that rare.
