Charless Robson was of course more widely know as Driver to Chard. I believe in mid battle he apologised to Chard for leaving his kit in a wagon ouside the perimeter.

From forum member Lee Stevenson.


"Just wanted to say that I actually made/hand carved that headstone/marker back in 1993...
We held a small service at the grave side attended by Robson's grand-daughter and the late Colonel Mike McCabe, RE, and members of the local RE Association in attendance.
I have some photos of the original plaque and of the service.
The wooden plaque was replaced by a permanent stone marker in 1999"
Regards
Lee Stevenson
