Statement, Red Cross File No 2350111, 4789 Pte W. DUCKETT, 14th Machine Gun Company (patient, No 9 General Hospital, Rouen), 24 May 1917: 'At Fromelles on the 20th July/16 we were in trenches and we went over the top at 5.45 p.m. on that day, our objective being the German trenches about 300 yards to our front. Rogerson was one of a Team of 4 on a M.G. The other 3 it is known were taken Prisoners, they were men called Walker, Temperley and Hart. I saw Rogerson just as we [were] going over the top but not after. I knew him personally. He did return with us and it was supposed he had been taken Prisoner. Nothing more was heard of him after that and his body, so far as I am aware, was not found.'Medals: British War Medal, Victory Medal
