Lancelot Woodrow was not officially recorded by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as he enlisted under his brother's name Bertie Woodrow. I have managed to establish that he now has been listed under his right name which took some time via e-mails to the Commission. I have been informed that his name will be added to the memorial when they next engrave there.

Editor's Comment:
Card from memorial service giving details of the fallen. Front inscription: 'He hath fought the good fight'. Poem to inside cover, begining 'Some day we hope to meet him'.
