From Andy Pay's research into the Marquis de Ruvigny's Roll of Honour the following:

Volume 1, Part 1, Page 49 - BREAM, Charles - Drummer, No 7248, 1st Battalion, Northamptonshire Regiment.

Son of Charles William Bream, of Nassington co. Northants, born Nassington 5th Dec 1883; educated there; joined the 1st Northamptons (D company), 1903 and saw active service on the Indian Frontier in 1904, for which he received two medals and two bars. He afterwards became a police constable in the Durham County Constabulary, and was stationed at South Moor, in the Lancashire and Consett Petty Sessional Division, when he was called up on the outbreak of war. He left with his Regiment for France, 17th August 1914, taking part in the retreat from Mons and several other engagements, and was killed in a bayonet charge at Festubert, 21st Dec 1914. In a letter to a friend in South Moor he said: "You will have heard about the battle on the Aisne. We were in the trenches for a month, and the first week it never ceased raining, and we had to stick it."

Later writing from Festubert, he said that they had had several engagements with the Prussian Guard, but had got through them doing six bayonet charges in ten days. He married at Yarwell, Nassington, 8 Oct 1913, Carrie, dau of Mr Mould, of Nassington.
