Hi

Am doing research into soldiers for a war memorial. On the CWGC the Burial Report says A.U.3 (60) in the means of identification column, does anyone know what this means? The body had been exhumed.

Hello Sheila,

If you can post his name, service number etc and if possible, a link to his CWGC entry, it will help others to put your query in context.

Hi,

The details are:

James George Warner 5699 Private in 6th Battalion Queen's Own (Royal West Kent Regiment) died 03/07/1916, buried at Ovillers Military Cemetery. Sorry but don't know how to do a link to CWGC entry!

Sheila,

Looking at the form and a few others, I am not certain, but suspect that the typewritten entries are the references to the original burial returns. The hand-written numbers, in red and brackets, appear to be related, but I have no idea where they originate from.
