Letter from one of Private Schoolden's Officers Lieutenant E. Bygott: Lumn Street is now part of Lumn Road. See our notes on Old Place Names.
He had been with us a long time, and had done some excellent work as a company signaller. He was killed on the 22nd March by, I believe, a machine gun bullet. The fighting at that time was very close and as all the other company officers are casualties, I am afraid I can give you no further particulars. The Huns now hold the ground where your son fell, so I am afraid it is impossible to get any kind of photograph or sketch of his grave.
