Ralph Marillier Miller was killed prior to assault Guillemont 29th July 1916, serving with A Coy of 17th Bttn Manchester Regiment. He would have received MC for recovering wounded CSM near Trones Wood on 9th July - if he hadn't been killed. His men new him as 'Jockey' probably because he worked with horses in ASC before Commission.

Need to learn how to post pics
My Grandad was in 2/Lt Miller's Platoon. He said
“Brave Jockey! Not many days after that [Trones Wood rescue] came the report that he had got a gas shell ‘all to himself’ – killed of course. Would he have been one of Shakespeare’s ‘Even in the cannon’s mouth men’?”
Not forgotten
