LOST MOBILE PHONE

CHELMSFORD RD 18/4/14

Hi Bruno Friday 18/4/2014

This evening when walking home from Zafrani

along Chelmsford Road, my wife and I found (what

appears to be) a new mobile phone lying on the

ground.

I believe I have found the owner's first name but the

phone is password protected so I cannot find any

further details.

It would be great to return it to its owner.

the whole event seem surreal. All were in bed by 8.30pm

most challenging.

There was very heavy rain during the night which we all

knew would make Day 2 ‘different.’ Dawn next morning

was clear and bright, giving hope that any bad

weatherhad passed which in fact it had. We knew that

today was to start with everybody being transported over

an extremely bad bit of road but we did not expect the

in this area we had to make for Pagali and Camp 4.

This was a straight run on smooth roads through towns

and villages, but the people were not so receptive to

greetings and waving as the Indians are on the Kolkata

Siliguri route. The area was much more agricultural with

fields of barley, wheat, banana and mustard interspersed

with cattle, goats and pigs. We crossed the barrage over

the River Sun Koshi, which was built in the ‘70’s with

Indian finance to prevent mass flooding of the Bihar State

during the monsoons. At the east end of the barrage there

was a large fish market selling all sorts and sizes of fresh

water fish, a popular stopping off point for buses using

the highway. The road skirted the Koshi Tappu Wildlife

Reserve although we did not see any of the wildlife!

After Pagali we stopped to have a walk round the market

which, although providing shelter, gave us good views of

President - Lord of the Manor

ALFRED BROWN
It is never easy to trace the career of any man called
Brown, and this was the case with Alfred BROWN.
Soldiers Died In The Great War described him as 7945
Private, 1/Bedfordshire Regiment, as having been born in
Hatfield Heath, Herts [sic], having enlisted in Bedford,
while residing in Bishop’s Stortford, Herts. Unfortunately
no service record has survived for him at The National
Archives. Commonwealth War Graves Commission added
nothing biographical. His regimental number clearly
indicates a regular army enlistment pre-1914, which might
well explain the enlistment location as Bedford; his Medal
Index Card shows entitlement to a 1914 Star Trio (he
entered France on 16 August 1914). Alfred BROWN can
be found on the 1891 census for Hatfield Heath, where he
is recorded as Alfred H BROWN, age four, the seventh
child (of nine) of Jonathan and Eliza Brown, of Gibson’s
(Farm), Hatfield Heath; his father was a farm labourer. His
birth was registered in Dunmow district in June quarter
1886. The 1901 census records him as age fourteen, a
horse-boy on a farm, the son of Jonathan Brown (now a
horse-keeper). I could not find him in the 1911 census,
which was almost certainly because he was already a
regular soldier. His number, according to Nigel Lutt,
archivist for the Luton and Bedfordshire records service,
was issued in March 1904; this would tie in with Alfred
BROWN being just about eighteen and of age to enlist.
Alfred BROWN was killed in action on 27 July 1916,
when his battalion was in action at Longueval. The war
diary (WO 95/1570) described the attack at some length,
detailing the activities of each Company, but the overall
picture was quite clear: ‘9.30 am C Coy crossed PRINCES
Street and took up a position parallel with NORTH Street
joining up the two leading NORFOLK Coys. They were
unable to progress further owing to heavy machine gun
fire from DUKE Street They consolidated their position. 1
officer and 30 O.R. went forward from B Coy at “C” to
reinforce A Coy of NORFOLKS at “A”. This company
was held up by machine gun fire from direction of DUKE
Street and was unable to advance. STOKES Mortar
Battery was asked to cooperate, but did not come into
action. Later, heavy artillery was asked to bombard this
post. While awaiting this and the opportunity to advance,
B and D Coys endeavoured to improve their cover under a
hurricane bombardment. Casualties in these two Coys – B
Coy 2 officers and 54 O.R. out of 5 officers and 166 O.R.
D Coy 2 officers and 106 O.R. out of 5 officers and 176
O.R.’ I suspect that Alfred BROWN was killed in this
