My Paternal Grandmother Christabel Constable (nee Carnell) gave the bible to her son (my father) when he was 11 years old and going to grammar school.
He did not recognise the name and asked me to see if I could identify who F Carnell was.He didn't realise that Funny was part of such a large family and that he had Great Uncles.
There is no other information in the bible other than the inscription I described:
Private F Carnell18520
15 East End
Nr Downham Market
Wounded 2.4.16 Hulluch (although I have not checked whether this is the correct spelling).
Returned to France again 1.7.17
This bible saved a mans life
