Why is 350701 JOHNSON commemorated as "Mossis Lesie"?

Looks like Norris Leslie to me.

...though the MIC is indexed "Louis Leslie" :rolleyes:

Perhaps this chap:

Births Mar 1898, JOHNSON Norris Leslie, Wandsworth (1d 674)

Son of Charles James and Lilian M JOHNSON, brother of Ernest Marshall C JOHNSON, living at 14 Daventry Ave, Walthamstow, in 1901.

Does the DC say "Mossis Lesie", and is that the supreme authority?

Thanks for the reply, Terry. Maybe one day a descendent will rediscover him and get it corrected (if it is indeed wrong)!

I was also going to say something about it being a pretty big Labour Corps number for someone who died in 1916, but now I've found this:

Can't find any trace of him post-war though...

I think this one needs a review, Terry - DC extant or not.

A previous thread on the forum seemed to establish that the SWB had to be applied for by the individual at the time of, or post-discharge, so there is no obvious explanation of why a man who was allegedly killed in 1916 was still "quick" enough to do so in 1918.

We have a system in place for any such case to be reviewed by MoD. There have been about six such cases but not all with totally convincing evidence.
