Lt Stephen Cormack SWAYNE


Perth Digger

Recommended Posts

According to CWGC and ODGW Lt S C Swayne was serving with 3rd Buffs, a reserve unit, when he went missing on 30 September 1915. He appears not to have been among the 24 8th Buffs officers recorded as casualties at Loos, so he was not with them. Any ideas as to which battalion he was serving with, please? He is on the Loos Memorial.

 

Thanks
