Is "Ricket" meant to be "Tikrit"?

Recommended Posts


Three years ago or so I started a thread on Pte. Arthur Murray and the inscription on his family gravestone:

At the time it did not occur to me to question where "Ricket" was in Mesopotamia.

Judging from his date of death (5 November 1917), I think it should be Tikrit.

Is there another possibility I have missed?
