Hendrick BARNARD

Grave III.G.40.

Son of Johannes Jacobus Barnard and Lea Magelana Barnard, of Redlands, Barrington, Knysna, Cape Province (Source : C.W.G.C.).

Died on the 14th October 1916 of wounds received in front the Butte de Warlencourt. On the 12th October, the 2nd and 4th S.A.I. attacked Snag and Tail Trenches. The assault died away because of machine guns nests, placed well back in prepared positions, which caught the attacking waves at long range.

Age 27.
