Soldiers Died shows that this man was killed in action on 4.5.1915. The War Diaries show that five men were wounded that day but none are listed as killed. The number of other ranks killed on the 3rd and 5th are shown as 1 and 14 respectively, and it may be that Private Saggers was killed on one of these days.
