    Reply from the CWGC, I can't recall what message I sent them:

    Dear Mr Burke,

    Thank you for your email of 11th May.

    I have examined our records and all the information we have here states his date of death as 9th February 1942. Our Grave documents also state his date of death on his headstone is 9th February 1942.

    If you have documentary and photographic evidence to prove otherwise, do send it on to me and we will investigate further.

    Regards,

    Miss Hayley Williams

    I've emailed them back the photo from the CVWM , very infuriating. Perhaps its been amended since the photo was taken last year?

    And in reply to seeing the photo:

    Thank you for the photograph. We also work with The War Graves Photographic Project who currently hold a photograph. I will look into this further with them and see if we have any evidence to suggest when a change was made, or if in fact it is a human error!

    I will be in touch in due course.

    Geoffrey W Henderson age 19 Fylde Lancashire,

    there are as many as 8 T Wilsons in Scotland in 1942, between ages of 16 and 60, if someone had any credits for scotlandspeople could they check.\

    Dakers is still listed as 9 February on CWGC?
