Hello from Flanders

Maybe I overlooked the man on your site but I found a John McLeod on the website of the CWGC which may not be in your list:

McLEOD, JOHN
Initials: J
Nationality: Canadian
Rank: Private
Regiment/Service: Canadian Infantry (New Brunswick Regiment)
Unit Text: 44th Bn.
Age: 28
Date of Death: 27/04/1918
Service No: 234905
Additional information: Son of Angus McLeod, of Mill Park, Carloway, Stornoway, Lewis, Scotland.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Memorial: VIMY MEMORIAL

I also notice that there quite some errors in the list when it comes to geographic reference. Soldiers who are buried in Flemish cemeteries (which is in Belgium) are sometimes mentioned as "In France".

Keep up the good work!

Erwin,

Sorry for the late response. John McLeod was in fact listed under Park Carloway, but was not easily recognisable. There are so many John M(a)cleods in Lewis. He lived at 46 Park Carloway, and I have added your reference to his details. Many thanks.

The geographical references come from the Roll of Honour, which was published in 1921. It is full of inaccuracies like that.

A touching tribute.

A son of Lewis.
