CWGC data - company idents

Recommended Posts

I notice some CWGC entries include a company e.g. C Coy, 1/5th Seaforth.

Was this information from military sources or relatives? I guess the real question is - how valid is this?

The answer is both!

The relatives sometimes filled in military details on their Final Verification Form including former units in which the casualty had served.

They did this to amplify the sometimes bare official data.

So really I can't answer how reliable the info is!
