Soldiers remains found on the Somme



Yesterday 27/2/13 I found the remains of a World War One soldier In a field in pozieres I have declared the remains to the gendarmerie and passed on the personal effect I found which incl :-

A spoon

A fork

A ring

An Australian badge

A button

And some little beads ??

I believe the remains have been recovered today from the field and I await their findings , i am hoping they will find some indication as to who this soldier is

Many thanks for your enquiry

Kindest regards
