Headstone Gunner J.A. Reid

REID, JAMES ALLAN (23 Field Regiment)

Gunner James Allan Reid (age 21) C/101820 (R.C.A.) was born in Farm Point, Quebec, Canada. He disembarked in France on July 23, 1944.

Researching his service records and the 23 Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery war diary concluded that Gunner Reid died on September 8, 1944 instead of September 7, 1944.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission confirmed these findings. Mr. Martin Skelly placed a headstone amendment request into their works programme which will be assessed by one of their works teams when they are next on site. If an amendment in situ is possible this will be carried out in due course however if a replacement stone is required this will add some time to the process.
