    I found this reference to Walter Edmund Swan Edgar MC in my great uncles diary from 1916 – Tuesday 1/8/16 Handed over the bombers to Swanny Edgar and was attached to “C” Coy and went to live permanently at the front line

    Sorry, I should note my great uncle was Leslie William Elliott also in the 57 battalion

    I have a number of letters from Walter to his mother while he was on active service including one which quite casually mentions he has given his military cross to someone to take home!
