Today, Sunday May 7th, 2017, as part of a research tour of Belgium with London Officers Training Corps, I visited the grave of private Spicer at Tyne Cot and spoke for a few minutes about him and his service.
I chose to research and speak about Pte Spicer because there is very little information about commonwealth casualties that is passed on in Britain.
As a dual british-kiwi national I chose to look at the New Zealand forces. The lack of information about the exact manner of Pte Spicer's service, death, and burial go to show how easy it is to lose track of the individual's story in World War One.
It was an honour to speak about Pte Spicer, and I hope that any family of his who may read this can know that their relative is not forgotten to the world.
