Rung on the day of the 100th anniversary of the death, aged 23, of Private Wilfred Akers, 1st Field Service Battalion, Somerset Light Infantry, from the neighbouring village of Charlton. He was evacuated from the North West Frontier garrison in India through illness to Durban, South Africa, where he later died from pneumonia and is buried in the Durban Road Military Cemetery. Also best wishes to Steve on his birthday.
