Margi,welcome to the Forum, you may be aware but just in case your not, he gets a mention in the Roll of honour at the back of 'Redan Ridge; The Last Stand' by Peter Weston. This is a good little book that tells the story the action he was killed in! Hopefully someone will be able to help you with a picture. Regards,

Margi,A warm welcome to the forum. Do you have any other info such as which Company he was in? Spike (on the forum) has the Rolls for the Lonsdale Battalion so maybe a PM to him might be a good staring point. I have this in the Lonsadale Roll of Honour:
Hammond, Vincent Edward, Knighton, Radnors, Knighton (Knighton), 27767 Pte. Formerly 4421 Hereford Regt., k.i.a., F & F,
Group/squad photos of the Lonsdale battalion are quite rare but if I see one I will let you know. If we know which company he was in that might be a start.Chris
In memory of John Bardgett (15309 L/Cpl.), 11th Border Regiment who died 1st July 1916.
