Hope you don't mind if I add this Spidermonkey:

From the other thread:
Of the 192 Australians believed buried at Pheasant Wood, Fromelles, quite a number were originally born in the UK.   Although a few emigrated with their immediate families, many listed their next of kin as still residing in various parts of the UK.

If anyone is able to assist with locating descendants who may still reside in the UK, we would be exceptionally grateful to hear from you.

Don't know whether this will be of use in finding a descendant but there is a Albert George Pheasant on the El Uruguayo, returning to Plymouth in May 1916 from Argentina.  He gives his address as 4 Barry Avenue, Stamford Hill.

Walter's father had the unusual middle name of Farnell.  There's a couple of trees with a Richard Farnell Pheasant in, but no recent activity on them

Edited to add:  have sent an email to someone with RFP in their tree.  One of the hardest emails that I have ever had to write - just couldn't find the words to say what I meant  :-\
