Indeed Rest in Peace.

I'm sorry if this sounds pedantic but I think that

"Sgmn Johnson died of uticaria & angeleodema " should read

"Sgmn Johnson died of urticaria & angioedema "

although the last word could have been spelt 'angio-oedema' in those days.

Likewise, "- Cpl of Horse Haynes died of chondo-endothelioma" should read

"- Cpl of Horse Haynes died of chondro-endothelioma" (a tumour containing cartilage).

As I say, apologies for correcting the spelling, but as these names will now be remembered forever, I'm sure the errors would be picked up by someone else sooner rather than later.
