About the memorial: John Edmund Du Buisson, Second Lieutenant, Royal Field Artillery. John was born on 19 January 1898, the son of Arthur Edmund and Helen Letitia Du Buisson, of Swiftsden, Hurst Green, Sussex, and of Glynhir, Llandybie. He was educated at Wells House School, Malvern Wells, and at Marlborough College. He entered the Royal Military Academy in October, 1914, received his commission in April 1915 and went to France in the following September, joining 'C' Battery, 99th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, which was attached to the 22nd Division. The Division concentrated in Salonika during December 1915, and fought the Bulgarian and Turkish Armies there for the remainder of the war. It was during the Battle of Machukovo that John sadly died of dysentery, aged only 18, on 11 October 1916. He is buried at Salonika (Lembet Road) Military Cemetery, Salonika. John is also commemorated on an individual marble memorial within the Church.
