Benhilton page added

Today I’ve added the page for Benhilton. Four men served, two would not return to the tower, though unusually both lie in the churchyard in Benhilton. One possibly the victim of some sort of accident while working with an agricultural company of the Labour Corps (soldiers not at full fitness following wounds or illness were sometimes employed working on the land to help make up for the shortage of labour caused by the war), he died the day before the Armistice; the other died later in November 1918 and may well have been a victim of the Spanish Flu which was raging at the time.
