Sapper John Dick

Sapper John Dick

About this memory

1. Searching through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on their web site after scanning over 114 names of casualties with the name John Dick I found the details of my relative, his service and date of death. He had been a Sapper in the Royal Engineers. The main clue was that the address of his parents in Leith was included. I noted all his information and copied the Commemoration Certificate for the family.
