    I'm intrigued by this casualty and is probably a recording error by the authorities.

    Listed on CWGC.

    Rank: Private
    Service No: 4807592
    Date of Death: 05/03/1943
    Age: 27
    Regiment/Service: Lincolnshire Regiment
    Unit: 6th Bn.
    Grave Reference: 3. E. 19.
    Additional Information: Husband of Frances May Webster, of Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire.

    Conscripted into the Lincolnshire Regiment 1940

    Cause of Death: Killed in action.

    The nominal Roll is marked as having come back from the War in 1946. Class Z (T) Reserve 6/4/1946. I will apply for his service records to see if it is an error. Mistakes can happen, but I've never come across this one before. Any thoughts appreciated. :D

    Many thanks.

    This is the strange part. It must be down to an admin error and we'll probably never know.


    I wonder if his wife (Frances May Webster) remarried.
