I have a death plaque to a David John Kearns and for the life of me ( even with all the war dead databases available to me) I simply cannot find this guy. I searched in the Ozzies, Canadians and British Army, even the CGWC, did I find him? ...nope not a sniff!!

Go ahead....make my day.Who was he?

Regards.

Tom.

Did you find out what the second name of this guy was??:

It's a low number and, if I'm right (that this is David John), he was discharged and later died of his injuries. If he died after the CWGC cut-off dates, but it was 'proved' (by a doctor, and accepted by the War Office) that he died of injuries/disesase brought on by war service, his next of kin would have received a plaque - but his name would NOT be commemorated by the CWGC.

Is it not worth downloading his MIC card....??
