Pte Leslie Clark Dunn

The following is another tribute done by our Honorary Member in France Pierre Seillier. Pierre reports on the identification of another 31st Battalion man Pte Leslie Clark Dunn:

Hello all. If I read well the Facebook page “Fromelles Descendant Database” compiled by our friend Tim Lycett, Carolyn Gardner wrote “My husbands grandfather Pte Leslie Dunn has just been identified by DNA. He also fell in Pheasant Wood. His headstone commemoration is to be held on 19/7/19 which happens to be his granddaughters birthday. Sadly my husband died several weeks previous to receiving the long awaited news.”
I have done research and I assume that the soldier is 641 Private Leslie Clark DUNN 31st Bn He is the only Leslie Dunn KIA during WW1 at Fromelles. Once again a man of our beloved 31st Bn, also listed as KIA on 21st July… Commemorated over many years at Villers Bretonneux, now at VC Corner and soon at Pheasant Wood, when I know more about the graves location, I will let you know
