church congregation has solved a century`old mystery about the fate

:00:19.:00:22.

of a Nottingham man. His name was discovered by chance by his niece on

a war memorial, but no`one knew why it was there. James Roberson has

more. Recently, Christine from Arnold in Nottingham was visiting St

:00:37.:00:39.

John's Church in Carrington for the first time in decades. During her

:00:40.:00:44.

visit she looked at the great War Memorial inside and stumbled by

:00:45.:00:49.

chance on her uncle's name. The family said she died in Rhodesia, as

:00:50.:00:53.

it was then, and I thought, why was he in Rhodesia? Her father served in

:00:54.:00:59.

the great War so Christine asked the church for help. Investigations by

:01:00.:01:05.

the congregation at the church revealed William had left the family

:01:06.:01:10.

home in Carrington and had served but in Northern Rhodesia, now

:01:11.:01:17.

Zambia, in Africa. He was in the Northern Rhodesian police and

unfortunately, the pandemic of the flu in 1918 killed him on Christmas

Eve. But he was mentioned twice in dispatches. So on behalf of St

John's, I would like to present to you... The Commonwealth War Graves

Derby County took on Nottingham Forest again today ` although this

:02:03.:02:05.

time it was for charity. Former players from both clubs were taking

:02:06.:02:08.

part in the Sport Relief Rivals match. Tom Brown was there. The

:02:09.:02:11.

second time this weekend, local breaking rights up for grabs. Family

:02:12.:02:17.

rivalries were put to the test. Can they get revenge today? Yes. No.

:02:18.:02:30.

Today Long Eaton hosted the match. Unlike yesterday, the Nottingham

:02:31.:02:34.

Forest fans had something to smile about. After going one up in the

:02:35.:02:38.

first half, they got a free kick. They reminded the fans that class is

:02:39.:02:45.

permanent. Another strike sealed the win. But today the real goal was

targets. Steve Walsh was speaking to BBC Late Kick Off, as they were

given access`all`areas at the club's training ground. And if Leicester do

:03:19.:03:24.

return to the Premier League for the first time in a decade, do they need

:03:25.:03:29.

new players? I think it's just key areas where we feel either cover all

an improvement. But we're going to run with what we have got, and from

:03:35.:03:39.

them, we will try and build in key areas, suppose that.

:03:40.:03:45.

In today's rugby, a six try triumph for Leicester Tigers against Exeter.
