Today we pay respects to another of our Bourne lads on the 100th anniversary of his death.
Driver Frank (Francis) Stubley of the 22nd battery, 33 brigade, Royal Field Artillery who died on the 1st April 1918, age 24.
Frank was the son of of Francis and Elizabeth Stubley of Wood House, North Fen, Bourne Lincolnshire.
This was a bitter blow to the Stubley family having previously lost Son Ernest who had been killed in October 1916 on the Somme with the King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regiment.
Son George has also been killed only 12 days before Frank in April 1918 near Ploegsteert fighting with the Durham Light infantry.
Frank is remembered on the Bourne Memorial along with his two brothers and buried at the St Sever Cemetery Extension in Rouen.
Rest in Peace
