An historically important and sad double casualty grouping of the Barker brothers of BEESTON, Nottingham.
The two brothers almost certainly joined the regiment on the same day as the service numbers are very close indeed. 
They were killed just over three months apart during the Battle of Arras.
Both men, aged 21 and 22 respectively came from:
22, MONA STREET, BEESTON, NOTTINGHAM.
The house still survives
