2/Lt David Tanner of the 1/8th Battalion
307044 Corporal Harry Wright
“The first tour was very quite, but was marred by the unfortunate loss on patrol of 2nd Lieut. D. Tanner, and Corpl. Wright on August 30th. Tanner very gallantly undertook to reconnoitre a Boche post, and took out with him Corpl. Wright and two men. The two men got back safely, but Tanner and the NCO were missing, and were reported later to have either been killed or to have died of wounds”.
