    I see that the BBC used a couple of clips from the films listed earlier for Portillo's last episode around the Somme.

    According to my great grandfathers Regimental war diaries, on April 15th 1917, a small patrol was sent out to observe a village and local railway station near Albert.
    There was no other action in that area that night. He never returned and that was the date of his death.
    Were presuming he was on that patrol.
    Now he is one of the 72000 names on the Thiepval memorial...

    Now if you believe in coincidence.. His service number is my date of birth.
