Dunlop Pte G 4387


M Aug 25th/16I was on the same gun as Dunlop at Pozieres.  We were going into the front line before the company to get the guns into position.  I was alongside him when the parapet was blown in and he was buried.  When we got him out he was dead.  His body was taken to the rear for burial.
