i stumbled upon a very odd situation a while ago, a pal of mine found a 1st war death plaque in a junkshop and bought for me because there was a sticker on the back that said this person enrolled in a town close to where i live, so after trying the phone book i found a relative and hey presto he pointed me in the direction of the grave great methinks

not so after many weeks of tramping around a gert big boneyard i found it, now hers the prob because the son died before the cwgc had a standard headstone and a short while later his mother died so they buried her on top of him so what i found was a small inexpensive headstone with son and mothers names inscribed

in short a man who died on active service with no official type headstone
are there any more?
