Exactly a century after he was killed in World War One, the only Herefordshire-born soldier to be awarded the Victoria Cross has been honoured today.
Allan Leonard Lewis took part in the final allied push to break the German Hindenburg Line but was killed on 21 September 1918.
A special paving stone has been laid today to commemorate a Bristol man awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions in World War One.
The stone for Lt. Col Daniel Burges was laid at St Peter’s Church in Castle Park, as part of a nationwide campaign to honour First World War Victoria Cross recipients.
He is one of eight VC holders with Bristol connections.
Lt. Col Burges, who grew up in Clifton and Brislington, was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions at the Battle of Doiran on this day, 100 years ago.

An appeal to find the relatives of West Midlands Police officers, killed in World War One, has been launched.
A total of 650 officers from Birmingham City Police, Coventry City Police, Wolverhampton Borough Police and Walsall Borough Police enlisted to serve in the 1914-1918 war, with 145 of them killed.
Relatives are to be invited to a new roll of honour, commissioned by the police benevolent fund, to mark the centenary of the war this year.
