Drake Battalion Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve

Tragically his sister Annora died as a consequence of a bobsleigh accident just months before the war. His parents had no other children. Despite appearing on the Helles Memoria, Lancelot was originally buried "...on the right of Krithia Road between two forks of Achi Baba Gully in rear of the present Redoubt line" source: Royal Naval Division Casualties of The Great War, 1914-1924
