My story

"Previously reported Missing, believed Killed, now Killed in Action." Whilst acting as a bomber at Hill 60, Zillebeke, the enemy sprung a mine immediately under his section and Private Riddolls and the comrades with him were blown up with the debris. It is believed that he was killed instantly.
