A tall private was an English soldier who fought in France during World War I. He was under the command of Captain McIntyre, and was rather young for a soldier, possibly in his late teens or early twenties. He displayed a friendly disposition, fetching a cup of coffee for Rupert Davenport after he made the crossing across no man's land from another trench, and offering him friendly advice.
