The information with an asterisk is information additional to what is shown on the CWGC site.

*Age: 35 Date of Death: 16/08/1915 Cause: Killed in action.
Previous Military Service: The Indian Army Quarterly (dated 1/1/192) shows Bertram V. Falle serving as a Lieutenant with the Malabar Volunteer Rifles (assigned 6/11/1907). The London Gazette dated 29 December 1914 shows him as being made a “Temporary Lieutenant” with the 9th Bn Royal West Surrey Regiment on 14 December 1915.

Mal,

Thanks for this
His WO339 file also fines down his marriage to 17/4/15, and DoB as 25/4/1880 (Chowringhee, Calcutta)
His Temp Commission application gives address as New English Club, Petrograd, from whence he wrote seeking commission. Intriguing Russian connection.

Tonbridge OTC recommended 9/West Surreys, so assume he was a Tonbridge boy.
