CWGC will replace headstone A.I. Northrup

Avard Isaac Northrup G/12239

While collecting data for this website I've discovered an incorrect regiment inscription on Avard's headstone. It says 'North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment' (NSR).

This young Private disembarked on July 27, 1944 from England and disembarked on August 30, 1944 in France. Avard Isaac Northrup G/12239 died age 19 in Belgium by a bullet wound to the head. His remains were temporary buried in Duinhoek, Belgium. A place between De Panne and Adinkerke.
