Not exactly a Western Front story, actually its more like a Home Front story and I have mentioned this elsewhere on this Forum, so at the risk of boring you all I'll tell the story again!
In my collection I have the 1915 Trio and Memorial Plaque to 6356
Pte George Henry Lowe of the 1st Bn CEF, he is buried at Y Farm Military Cemetery, he was killed in action on the 10 March 1915.
On a visit to a family grave at St. Pancras Cemetery in Middlesex I decided to leave the car and have a mooch-about in the overgrown areas of this vast cemetery. I fought my way along a disused path full of brambles when I found a CWGC grave, equally hidden in brambles etc. I cleared the undergrowth away and was suprised to find the grave of 6402
Lance Sergeant D. McMasters, 1st Bn CEF, who died on 18 Nov 1915.
I have gone back to locate the grave on numerous other occasions but without success.
I wonder what the odds on finding this grave were.
