Memorial / Grave Details

  • Restoration Date: August 15th, 2019

The headstone of this grave, in the stunning location of Shorncliffe Military Cemetery, overlooking the sea near Folkestone, had considerable damage. Although not provable, this was said to have been due to strafing by a German plane during the Second World War. The grave was in need of a bit of tidying up and weeding around the sides as well as restoration of the headstone. The Association is very grateful to Al Winstanley for his hard work caring for the grave and to Steve Davies for pushing for the restoration. This was funded by the Association but also by the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and by the Northumberland Fusiliers
