    I’m still researching CWGC casualties who are buried at Douglas Bank cemetery, Rosyth in preparation for a Doors Open Day tour next month.

    There is a single German grave of Leading Stoker Bruno Lange and I’ve found his death certificate on Scotland’s People. Bruno was a prisoner of war and died of alcoholic poisoning.

    I can make out “Between 11.45 pm on December 26th and 0 ? On December 27th on board German escort vessel F2? Lying in River Forth near ? Dockyard Rosyth”

    Anyone able to make any sense of the rest please?

    Many thanks,

    Thanks very much ltdan! That’s really interesting and nice to add a bit more to Bruno’s story.
