Statement, 2641 Pte C.H. DENCH, A Company, 60th Bn, 21 September 1916: 'I saw him shot on 19.7.16 at Fleurbaix about 150 yards from our trench. We were advancing at the double at the time and he was about 4 yds in front of me. He fell backwards and said something as he fell but I could not understand what he said. I thought he was killed. The Germans did not come over; it was this side of the River, so he could not be a prisoner. I am quite sure it was Underwood, he was my mate.'Medals: 1914-15 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal
