In 2013 I managed to have 'DCM' added to the CWGC database for the above [earned in the Boer War] and would like a pic of the amended headstone please. TIA

Would very much appreciate Thomas' name being added to a list - doesn't matter how long it takes. TIA

My goodness, I expected his DCM to have been added by now! Thanks so much for visiting and taking a pic [much clearer than the one I have so not a wasted journey]

Yes when I looked at it I thought you would be disappointed there was no sign of the DCM yet.

I've contacted CWGC to ask when it will be completed [it's not as if I need to wait for the stone to be replaced]

Happy to report that CWGC have now added DCM to Thomas' headstone and they even arranged for a pic [they were most apologetic that their database had been updated but that a work slip hadn't been generated]
