This is actually a member of my family. I believe he is my dad’s great uncle. His brother William Henry Gunner also died in World War 1 aged 26 and was awarded the military cross. My grandpa was named after him. I didn’t know that Arthur used to work for RBS and I didn’t know that you remembered members of staff that fought in world war 1 on your website so it has been lovely to read this about a member of my family and find out more about him.
