Remembering Today:

Pte Erwin Alexander URE, 19/1796A Samoan Relief Force, who died aged 55 on 15.08.15. Magiagi Cemetery, Samoa

This is interesting.

He does not appear to be on the NZEF CD

He is in the strays records, as Edwin Alexander Ure, buried in Apia in 1915. This information came from London, England.

Is he an Englishman?

No, an Australian! by birth, anyway!
