The Queen has spoken for the first time of her family’s painful search for the missing body of her heroic uncle who was killed in the First World War.

Remains of Captain Fergus Bowes-Lyon, the Queen Mother’s brother, have never been recovered since he died at the Battle of Loos in northern France in 1915.

His death, followed by their inability to find out where his remains lay, hit the Queen Mother and her family hard.

In 2011…James Voicey-Cecil,…and historian Christopher Bailey, helped trace where he was buried in a mass grave in a quarry.
