When history is personal

Cadet Melissa Rodger currently on the Battalion battlefield study trip, lays a cross at the grave of her relative, Private Samuel Loudon Rodger.

Melissa had researched the story of Private Rodger and his death at the age of 22 – killed in action in France on the 3rd May 1917 – when working on the detachment presentation for the Brigade Alban Sodger Competition a few weeks ago.
