La de da-

Private Burnett was with either 2nd of 5th Seaforths in 152 bde of the 51st Highland and was killed at Wadi Akirit Tunisia in early April '43 -it was abad battle and had a tendency to run out of ammo thus both the Highlanders went in with the bayonet and the Ghurka's of 4th Indian went in with the kukri - a very tough battle
