Perth Digger Posted 31 January , 2018 Share Posted 31 January , 2018 (edited) At one time there were 56 British soldiers buried in Haubourdin Com Cem. After the war all but one were removed, 44 to Cabaret-Rouge British Cemetery at Sonchez and 11 (all 1914 burials) to Laventie Military Cemetery. One was left: that of Lt Athol Benedict Trewman, 1st Middlesex Regiment, killed on 22 October 1914. Why was he left? It's possible that, as his grave abuts a large French memorial, it was too dangerous to remove it. But the CWGC sheets do not explain.
