English hymns echoed around a French First World War cemetery today as two soldiers, killed almost a century ago, were laid to rest on St George's Day.
Private Christopher Elphick from Shrewsbury and Lieutenant John Pritchard died on the battlefield in 1917 and remained undiscovered for more than 90 years.
The families of two British soldiers killed during World War One have finally been able to lay them to rest.
It's almost 100 years since Lieutenant John Harold Pritchard and Private Christopher Elphick were killed in action.
