2nd Lieutenant Ralph Marillier Miller and his family

Ralph Marillier Miller was the Platoon Commander of my grandfather during the Battle of the Somme.  Private Arthur Bell recounted the bravery of Ralph in his journal and these observations inspired the research.   The journal is published close to the Centenary of the Great War Armistice; a matter of days following the death of the fourth son Gerrard.  Contributions have been received from Ralph’s nephew John Margetson Place.  Significant records and photos have also been provided Ralph’s niece, Sue Butcher (nee Marillier Miller) and her husband Geoff.  We share the commemoration of these young men with their family.
