    AC1 Arthur JOYCE - 1301119 aged 33 : East Kilbride, County of Lanark, Scotland.

    To keep you updated about the Robert R. McSwan query where the CWGC has his death in 1943 whereas the statutory records indicate 1942, I have sent some documentation to the CWGC. They have replied to say there is a 6-8 week delay at the moment due to a backlog. I will let you know when I hear from them.
