Today is the 99th anniversary of the death of my great-grandfather, Henry James Weaver, accidentally killed by a bomb prematurely exploding during training at a base in France during WW1.

The photograph shows Henry's name on the War Memorial board near the back of the church in Curry Rivel, Somerset - Henry's home town.
