Camborne Youth Band visit to Sailly-sur-Lys Cemetery
Cornish miners from Dolcoath mine in Cornwall joined the 25th Field Ambulance in 1914. They were stationed at Estaires and early in 1915 played three rugby matches there (between Cornwall and Devon men) after a local club sent out a ball. 100 years on, the great great grandson of one of these men is in Camborne Youth Band and has his bugle. He and the band will play at the graveside of Thomas Penhorwood, one of the Cornish rugby players who was killed at Aubers Ridge.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is searching for the specific lot or the cemetery of Private John McLeod's interrment.
