rhimsl Posted 1 December , 2004 Share Posted 1 December , 2004 Here is the info I have: Private William Dews, Northumberland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion, Serial # S/7805 Born: Leicester / Enlisted: Leeds Private Dews died March 24, 1915, Theatre of War: France & Flanders Died How: Died Private Dews is buried at the Brompton Cemetary in London MIC states he qulified for the 1914-15 Star on March 6, 1915. I think it is very unusaul for someone to die in France, then be returned to England for burial. Can anyone shed some light on this one? Could he have possibley contracted some form of disease and shipped back to London where he died? Or could he have died of wounds after being shipped back? I've been going back and forth with this one for a few years! Thanks in advance for any and all help. Robert Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
