Another really quite stunning memorial, they must have been expensive, even by the standards of the day, just superb, with the attention to detail.

It is always sad to see all those poor buggers who lost their lives, for so often, little more, than simply a single mouth full of unboiled water, in this particular case, absolutely typical, four out of just nine men! :(

I'm glad you were able to find them. Do you happen to know where he was interred? I can't find any record online of his burial place.

Hi, he is buried in Netley military hospital. Unfortunately, he is registered as RYAN in the records instead of REGAN.
Here is the link:

The whole website is very informative and interesting
