Pte Walter George Bryan, 18238, 6th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was presumed killed in action on the Somme on or after July 15th, 1916. He was aged 30.

Pte Bryan is included on the Luton Roll of Honour but without an address. Military records also say he resided in Luton and enlisted at Bedford, but there were no reports in the Luton Press about him or his death around that time.

He was born in Leamington Spa, Warks, in 1886, the eldest son of James and Priscilla Bryan. In the 1901 Census he is described as a printer's errand boy. By 1911 he may have been working in a hotel in his mother's home town of Malvern, Worcs.
