101 years ago today, Sgt Bert Brown was killed near Manchester Hill, attached to 90th Trench Mortar Battery.  Stuart Brown has provided this Guest Post with a strong narrative on Bert and some wonderful photos.  Sharing these resources produces some real gems for the wider project.  Small aspects of clarifcation include more understaning of an MC Citation and larger gems are photos of mostly otherwise unknown members of the Battalion.
