    This is likely, but not certain, to be Private (later Lance Corporal) W J Redmore.

    Redmore was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) for the following action (search under Redmore in this piece).....

    The man suddenly starts getting called "Redmond" further down the shots list. Perhaps they should be changed to Redmore? Any more info on your canisters??
