    I can give you the 2 names from my Dad's Regiment on the Brookwood Memorial who were definitely lost at sea.

    The annoying thing is that the Unit Text includes Northumberland Hussars, who were 102 Anti-Tank, and not LAA. The NH did not nor never had a 337 Battery under command. CWGC have been written to with this information.

    A copy of the war diary is shown below, which shows they were guards on board a barge at sea (off Wilhelmshaven) which blew up whilst dumping ammunition. Although not actually named, I would say this is pretty conclusive evidence.

    Doing some research on former pupils of my old school Prince of Wales School Nairobi Kenya
    and have come across the following who though I don't think was an ex pupil but has still roused my interest

    Thanks CL1 for prompt reply, BUT you only cause more curiosity as the name shown above Millar's also would appear to have Kenya connections

    Name: FINDLAY Initials: G R Nationality: United Kingdom Rank: Serjeant Regiment/Service: King's African Rifles Unit Text: 1/2nd Bn. Date of Death: 16/07/1940 Service No: LF/722 Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead Grave/Memorial Reference: Panel 26. Column 1. Memorial: BROOKWOOD MEMORIAL



    is I believe Findlay Gerald Roland #722 of the Kenya Regiment presumably attached to 1/2 KAR

    Given above and the date 16/07/1940 one would expect a Somsaliland connection and thus an entry on the East African Memorial in Nairobi
