Grave or Reference Panel Number: Face 58.
Location: The Rangoon Memorial is situated in Taukkyan War Cemetery, which is outside Yangon (formerly Rangoon), near the airport and immediately adjoining the village of Taukkyan. It is on PY1 road (formerly Prome Road), about 35 kilometres north of the city from which it is easily accessible.
Historical Information: The RANGOON MEMORIAL bears the names of almost 27,000 men of the Commonwealth land forces who died during the campaigns in Burma (now Myanmar) and who have no known grave. The memorial stands in TAUKKYAN WAR CEMETERY, which is the largest of the three war cemeteries in Burma. It was begun in 1951 for the reception of graves from four battlefield cemeteries at Akyab, Mandalay, Meiktila and Sahmaw which were difficult to access and could not be maintained. The last was an original 'Chindit' cemetery containing many of those who died in the battle for Myitkyina. The graves have been grouped together at Taukkyan to preserve the individuality of these battlefield cemeteries Burials were also transferred from civil and cantonment cemeteries, and from a number of isolated jungle and roadside sites. Because of prolonged post-war unrest, considerable delay occurred before the Army Graves Service were able to complete their work, and in the meantime many such graves had disappeared. However, when the task was resumed, several hundred more graves were retrieved from scattered positions throughout the country and brought together here. The cemetery now contains 6,374 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 867 of them unidentified. In the 1950s, the graves of 52 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War were brought into the cemetery from the following cemeteries where permanent maintenance was not possible: Henzada (1); Meiktila Cantonment (8); Thayetmyo New (5); Thamakan (4); Mandalay Military (12) and Maymyo Cantonment (22). Taukkyan War Cemetery also contains: The TAUKKYAN CREMATION MEMORIAL commemorating more than 1,000 Second World War casualties whose remains were cremated in accordance with their faith. The TAUKKYAN MEMORIAL which commemorates 45 servicemen of both wars who died and were buried elsewhere in Burma but whose graves could not be maintained.

Breach of promise-----
At the York assizes on Monday, before Baron Cleasby, a breach of promise case, Hawkes V.S Bradford
was disposed of .
Mr. Price Q.C. and Mr. Sewers were for the plaintiff and Mr Seymore Q.C. was for the defendant. Miss
Harriet Jane Hawkes the daughter of Mr. Hawkes of the White Hart Hotel was the plaintiff and Mr.
Charles Bradford , a clerk in the Bank of England at Hull was the defendant.. The action was for breach of
promise of marriage and the case was partially tried on Saturday. Its hearing was adjourned in consequence
of the plaintiff fainting in the witness box at the opening of the court.
Charles promised to marry Harriett then his mother got involved and said that her friends would NEVER
accept someone like Harriett. So Charles backed out and Harriett took him to court. Charles had to pay
Harriett £180--. This appeared in August 1872 in various English newspapers. Then, as we know, Charles
married Harriett. I assumed that Charles went to Australia to get away from his mother.

Breach of Promise
At the York assizes on Monday Baron Cleasby resumed the trial of an action for breach of promise of
marriage which was brought by Miss Harriet Hawkes aged 19 the daughter of the proprietor of the White
Hart Hotel Hull , against Mr Charles Bradford aged 23, a clerk in the hull branch of the bank of England
The acquaintanceship sprung up at the bar of the White Hart Hotel In December last Then the defendant
desired to have a more intimate acquaintanceship with her) and to, take her for a walk Which the mother of
the plaintiff declined The defendant shortly after spoke in more pronounced way and on, the 25th. of
February he bad some conversation with the plaintiff’s mother who very properly said she could not allow
of anything like an intimacy to arise and to be carried on between them except with his mother's consent
The latter is a widow of a clergyman now residing Marlborough After this interview the defendant wrote
Mrs Hawkes a note , which he said he had reflected well, and be sure he should not regret gaining such a
wife as her daughter and that his mother would be as proud of her as he. It went On to say that he would
name the matter to his mother when he shortly after went over to Marlborough on a visit. Thence he wrote
to the plaintiff on March 2, styling her his "darling Harry" and stating that had he not received the
plaintiff’s letter so early as he ought because he and his ,mother had been visiting he added “ my pet, you
will think this a selfish letter if I tell you all about myself, I will tell you what is most upon my life—
namely, the though of the happiness of having your own dear self down here before I leave to return to
Hull. so I will not tell you what is most upon my life. I enclose an invitation from my mother to that effect
Come, my darling don t refuse on any account" He wound up by saying that he did not know how the
Plaintive wardrobe might be ; but he could spare a fiver " and subscribing himself " Charlie." With this
letter was also enclosed one. from the Mother of the, defendant to Miss Hawkes in which she stated the
interest she felt in the acquaintance between her and Charley that she wanted to learn to like her as a
daughter asking her to come up to see her, To this Miss Hawkes replied that she should consider it an
insult if the defendant sent money, and stated that at the time she could not visit. Mrs Bradford. Plaintiff
wrote again, stating that her father was likely to enter upon some business at -------------
Antwerp and that she should look out for a situation such as companion to a lady He replied by advising
her not to go to Antwerp on any account he could not live without her and if she went, he should throw up
his appointment at the bank and follow her, and live as best he could. Shortly after this defendant returned
to Hull, and the next correspondence was from his mother, in which she informed the plaintiff that she
looked upon her not, having come to see her
As a visit deferred,She also asked for a photograph of the face Charlie loved so well and spoke of their
engagement to marry.The defendant return was on a the 15th March when he asked if she would object, to
going into lodgings to which she replied she h "no objection . At that time he told her that he had a sum of
500l, which he bad received as a legacy and 1,000 contingent on the death of his mother, so that 'It they
Went, into lodgings he Would have sufficient to support her. Directly afterwards the engagement was
broken off, and a letter was read from Mrs. Bradford which had been addressed to the plaintiff explaining
the reason. The letter said it would he improper and imprudent to marry at present, and that, the
engagement must be put an end to giving as a reason the difference of birth and station On this account
the mo t h e r said her son never could be happy, her friends were high, in society and would not have
acknowledged her son after such a marriage She was advised to the tack of forgetting him as quickly as
possible. The defendant admitted to the mother of plaintiff that such a letter was a gross insult he still
persisted saying that he would marry the plaintiff ; but the plaintiff considering the matter at an end,
consulted a solicitor, who wrote to the defendant The latter thereupon went to the plaintiff with a document,
which he induced her to sign on the persuasion that it would make no differences to her, and which was to
the effect that the action which had been instituted was without her consent . Afterwards, however he
proposed to marry her. The plaintiff was, was put in the witness box, and after giving evidence in support
of the above statement for some time, she swooned and had to be removed from court.
At the YORK assizes on Monday, before Baron Cleasby a. breach of promise case, Hawkes V. Bradford,
was disposed of
Mr. Price Q.C., and Mr. Sewers were for the plaintiff
and Mr. Seymour Q.C., for the defendant, Miss Harriet¬ Jane Hawkes, the daughter of Mr. Hawkes, of the
Hart Hotel the plaintiff, and Mr. Charles Brad¬ford, a clerk in the branch of the Bank of. England at Hull,
Was the defendant The action was for breach of promises of marriage, and the case was particularly tried
on Saturday. Its hearing was adjourned in consequence of the plaintiff fainting in the witness box, and at
the opening of the court yesterday (Monday) morning the plaintiff was called into the box, but before any
questions could be asked Mr. Baron Cleasby put it to the counsel on either side whether the matter could
not be settled without exposing the young lady to the chance of the recurrence of a similar circumstances
to that which occurred on Saturday. . The matter was in such a State that really something might be done to
dispose of the case he meant that not a word had been said that really reflected on either side.
Mr. Seymour asked his Lordship if he would speak with him and Mr. Price in his Lordship's Private room.
His Lordship intimated that he would have no objection.
The three, thereupon retired, and on returning into Court his Lordship addressing the jury said the Parties in
the action had, with his sanction and to a certain extent by his advice, entered into an arrangement in
reference to the case which lie thought ought to be satisfactory to both parties. There ought to be a
disposition on the part of the defendant to make some reparation to the plaintiff and a disposition on the
part of the plaintiff to accept that which was reasonable without making the matter a ruinous one to the
defendant. Under these circumstances it had been arranged to give the plaintiff damages to the amount of
£.180, which was the full amount of one year's; salary of the defendant
The Jury therefore returned a verdict for the plaintiff;
Mr. Seymour said there was one statement which he thought it proper to make. The young lady left that
court without any reflection upon her propriety, and entirely without a stain. There had been no loss of self respect
on one side or the other.
M r. Price also added that there appeared to be no evidence that the plaintiff had tried to thrust herself upon
the defendant.

The Field General courts-martial of Sapper Robert Bell took place on 4 May 1918. Sapper Bell was charged with the murder of 2nd Lieutenant Wynell Hastings Lloyd (123 Field Company, Royal Engineers) on 17 April 1918.
President: Major R.D. Williams (Welsh Regiment).
Members: Major F.R.H. McLellan (Royal Welsh Fusiliers).
Captain D.C.R. Stuart (Border Regiment).
2/Lt. E.H. Evans (Royal Welsh Fusiliers).
Prosecutor: Major J.C.I. Wood (Royal Engineers).
Friend: Lieutenant Meeson (38th MGC).
285582 Sapper E.R. Pears (123rd Field Company) stated that on parade at about 4pm on 17 April 1918 the order was given for the inspection of arms, ammunition and gas masks. Immediately Lieutenant Lloyd came on parade he spoke to the accused mentioning the word "putties". The accused then walked off parade. Sapper Pears then heard a shot and saw Lloyd on the ground. Just after the examination of the emergency rations Sapper Pears saw a muzzle of a rifle sticking out of the trench in front of him, and to his right.
These details concerning the positions of Lloyd, the parade and the spot where Lloyd fell were confirmed by the next witness 146629 L/Cpl Hordish (123rd Field Company).
62629 Corporal R. Prior (123rd Field Company) stated that when Lieutenant Lloyd came on parade he noticed that the accused was not wearing his putties. I brought the accused out in front of the parade, and Lloyd asked him why he was not wearing his putties. Bell said that they hurt his legs. Lloyd dismissed him and told him to go and put his putties on. While inspecting the rear of the two ranks, Lloyd was shot and fell to the ground. I could only see the accused in the trench. The rifle was rested two yards away from the accused.
4218 CSM Foster (123rd Field Company) confirmed the observations made by the previous witnesses. Foster said that Bell told him "When I set out to accomplish a thing, I do it, there it is. I have done the section a good turn. You'll think of Bob Bell in years to come." He added that he was not aware of any ill feeling between Lieutenant Lloyd and the accused. These details were confirmed by the next witness: 82567 Sergeant W.R. Ferris (123rd Field Company).
Captain J.B. Gold RAMC examined the body of a dead officer. He had been shot in the forehead. As the officer was already dead, Captain Gold only gave a brief examination. Major Wood RE was present during the examination.
The accused made a statement not on oath (He could have decided to say nothing, make a statement or make a statement under oath). The accused stated that he slipped when getting out of the trench to rejoin the parade, after failing to find his putties. His rifle flew forward and exploded. He had forgotten to remove the round placed in the barrel earlier in the day, when he went hunting for hare or partridge.
140368 Sapper W.E. Shortt (123rd Field Company) stated that the accused was a good shot and had shot game before, especially rabbits.
Sapper Robert Bell was found guilty of the murder of Lieutenant Lloyd, contrary to the Army Act (section 41).
The accused had two previous convictions read to the court.
Date Offence Punishment.
1 March 1916 AWOL (16:30 - 01:00) 3 days pay and placed at the end of the leave rosta.
16 April 1916 Drunk in billet Admonished on 29 May 1916
In mitigation it was stated that the accused was 29 years' old. He had enlisted on 9 January 1915, and been in France since December 1915.
Sapper Robert Bell was sentenced to death by shooting with no recommendation for mercy. He was shot at 4.12 am on 22 May 1918. Sapper Bell was the last Royal Engineer to be executed during World War One.
