This is my first time on this website, so please forgive my lack of French. I have recently found an old photograph album belonging to an English soldier who fought in France during the war. Amongst the photos was one of a wooden cross with the name Marius Soupault on it.

Would anyone know how to find information about him, his regiment or his death here? Is he still buried in the same place?

Any information at all would be of great help.
