I note from CWGC that Herbert has no known grave and is remembered on the Menin Gate. Could this be because his grave was lost in fighting subsequent to his execution or were those executed by their own side buried in unmarked graves?
I think that Herbertís grave must have been lost in subsequent fighting
The example of a man SAD which I am most familiar with certainly has a marked grave: see att pic. The family even added a quote from the NT to the headstone
[Interesting that Dyett is referred to on the headstone as Lieutenant whereas his death warrant describes him as Temp. Sub Lieut. which I think is correct]
May they both rest in peace
ps: Should have added that the photograph is from Len Sellers' book 'For God's Sake Shoot Straight!'
