Researchers in Somerset are trying to solve the mystery of a man whose name appears on the war memorial in Yeovil.

They know he ('T. Thorne') died in World War One but all other information was thought to have been lost.

Now a photograph has be found and they are hoping, with the public's help, to build up the story of who he was.

We've got one part of the puzzle because we know his name and what he looks like. It's just finding those other people that fit in the background who can make the connections. We have a face of him in the photograph, but we want to see what was he like as a person? Does anyone know him? So we can remember him as fully as we can.
