Lance Corporal Alex Cunningham McCartney (age 27) G/22663 (North Shore Regiment) was born in Newcastle, New Brunswick, Canada. He disembarked in France on D-DAY June 6, 1944.
Researching his service records shows that his service number suppose to be G/22663 instead of C/22663. "G" service numbers are known for enlistments in New Brunswick, while "C" service numbers are known for Ontario.
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.
