    I was thinking very much the same. Wonder what the circumstances were behind his death.

    According to Geoffs Search engine this was the DLI`s first official casualty of the War! I am aware of a Pte A R Milburn who was killed on the 29th August 1939(before the official dates and therefore not listed on CWGC) by a train whilst guarding the Viaduct at Croxdale!

    Mack, you have me intrigued, the date on the grave is 1944 not WW1 ?

    From Sunderland Echo:
    Sunderland Echo Wednesday June 28th 1944 - Rodley, In June L?O Alfred Rodley, dearly beloved son of Mr and Mrs J Rodley, 37 North Milburn Street, died in France as a result of injuries received in a motor accident whilst serving with the AEP. Deeply mourned by all who loved him.

    Any idea what the L?O could have been, and what is AEP?
