My Grandfather would be 133 years of age tomorrow. 3/7/2017.
25064 Pte James Talman 9th Bn East Surry Regt was killed on 3 August 2017 aged 33. His wife my grandmother who I knew very well lived in Hunston, Chichester.
He has no known grave and he is commemorated on Panel 34 on the Menin Gate along with the names of 55,000 men who were lost without trace during the Ypres Salient. My father was just seven years of age at the time and he never ever spoke about his father, and nor did his mother who I lived with. So very sad. Make sure you talk to your children about your military service, they have a right to know.
