A lousy picture that doesn’t do justice to the story of four servicemen who all gained the Albert Medal for their efforts to save the life of a corporal of the Royal Air Force. Two of the recipients (image) were awarded their medals posthumously; Driver Alfred Horn and Private Arthur Johnston. Although Horn’s grave is inscribed with his medal, Johnston’s isn’t! Not an isolated incidence (from previous burial ground visits) and something that the CWGC are aware of and are working to correct, both the engraving of the award on the serviceman’s headstone and the citation in the cemetery register. The  soldiers are buried at Crouy British Cemetery.

Trouble with the headstones this time of year, Bagnaux were green last month. All the rain and chemicals off the farmland.
