    What's he doing buried down there?
    At one of the Depots perhaps?

    That would be my guess, especially if he was with one of the Base Depots.

    He is buried alongside my Great Uncle Prince Whitaker of the same battalion who died the same day. Their regimental numbers are very close too. My Grandmother was told that they were killed on a canal bridge in Dunkirk. From the war diary I believe that they may have died defending the canal at Furnes. It is a mystery why they were buried so far away
