The following link is to is the Casualty Form (Army Form B. 103) in respect of Private Pritchard. As can be seen he was posted as missing on 30 April 1915 (It would appear during the confusion of the April Landings he got separated from his unit). In August 1915 he was initially reported as wounded and missing and subsequently (April 1916) officially posted as Killed in action.
