A minute for Teddy Bullen

Shakers to mark the anniversary of the death of Teddy Bullen on Thursday evening.

7 August 2017

The club will be holding a minute’s silence ahead of Thursday evenings game with Sunderland to pay our respects to Teddy Bullen, who was killed in action 100 hundred years ago on Sat 11 August 1917
 
Teddy Bullen played for Bury in a wartime fixture against Liverpool as late as February 3rd 1917.  Just 6 months later, on Saturday 11th August, Teddy was killed in action at Vaulx-Vracourt, some 15 miles south-east of Arras.
 
His was one of a number of burials later consolidated into Vracourt Copse cemetery during the 1920's. This cemetery now holds over 100 casualties from 1917-1918 who died in the village or surrounding areas.
 
To mark the anniversary and for the club to again pay our respects to Teddy, we will be joined by Anne Bullen-Greenwood, Teddy’s grand-daughter as we play the last post, followed by a minute’s silence before the Carabao Cup game with Sunderland.
