2/Lt Bernard George Sheen Bull, 1st (Home Counties) Fd Coy, Royal Engineers.
Born at Winslow, Bucks, on 25 February 1896, Bernard was educated at Lynchmere School, Eastborne, Berkhampstead School and the Crystal Palace School of Practical Engineering. He was a good all round sportsman and, being a well developed six-footer, had represented Berkampstead School at the Public Schools Boxing Competition at Aldershot in 1913.
On the day that war was declared, Bernard was at home on holiday and enlisted immediately, being gazetted to the Royal Engineers TF from the 16th London Regiment in August 1914. During important, and dangerous recconnaisance work during daylight hours (in preparation for the digging of new communication trenches) in the vicinity of Fleurbaix, he was shot by a German sniper but was carried , unconcious, to a safer position by a Sapper of his party for the rendering of aid. Unfortunately, this was a forlorn hope as he died a short time later.
Originally buried in Fleurbaix Churchyard, Bernard is now interred in Caberet-Rouge British Cemetery, Souchez.
