Many thanks to Terry and the team for securing the commemoration of Gnr Wilson Anderton so swiftly.

 

Wilson Anderton only came to light in January as part of the project endeavouring to identify the six men of the 2nd Northumbrian Brigade RFA (killed on WhitMonday 1915) who were re-interred on 20 April last in the Ypres Town Cemetery Extension

It was hoped that a named grave would be secured for Wilson Anderton but, alas, it proved not to be the case. At least now, however, he will be eventually commemorated on the Menin Gate along with his comrades after having disappeared from history for a hundred years.

I was so pleased to see that the name of Ernest John Ailward has been added to CWGC today.  His name is on the Aylesbury War Memorial and I have been meaning to send in his details for some time but I see that Barbara Grayson has got there first.  He is listed in our website and there is extra personal information included. 

Barbara - I wonder whether you know where Ernest John Ailward was buried and is he listed on a Memorial in Swadlincote?

Hi June

 

You are on my 'to do' list and I will be in touch soon. I'm wondering if family called EJA 'John' as that is the initial on the Memorial in Aylesbury. Still checking a couple of links but I will get back to you.

Today we visited Swadlincote Cemetery with E J Ailward's nephew - having heard yesterday that an application had been received from the CWGC for the installation of the memorial.
