Except: One morning in late June, 1917, near the town of Messines, Lieutenant Colonel Bob Ingham set out on what was to be a routine recce.
However, fate had decreed that summer's day in northern Belgium would be the 36-year-old's last. He was fatally shot and today his remains are among the 10,000 or so casualties laid to rest in Lijssenthoek Cemetery near the Belgian town of Ypres.
Ingham was Sam Neill's grandfather. His mother's father and "the man who wasn't there" throughout the actor's childhood.
