One name not on the above Memorial, for whatever reason, is that of Walter Gambell.
Walter died in 1920 after years of bravely fighting the affects of gas. He is buried in Doddington Churchyard. His Gravestone reads :

In Memory of
4th Son of James & Eliza Gambell
Who Died Aug 25th 1920
Aged 28
Late The East Kent Regt
His long suffering was borne with cheerfulness to the end.
