HI I was hoping someone can clear this up for me I have a trio to a Pte Killed in Action who served in the 2nd Battalion Gordon Highlanders, but on the local war memorial he is a L/Cpl and his battalion is given as the 3rd, can some clarify why this would be, my only thought is he was promoted after he was killed.

Cheers Steven.
