Desnie Churchyard




Desnie Churchyard ligt aan de "Rue du Prč Boda".

Er bevinden zich 5 graven, waarvan 5(UK).







Deze vermelding heb ik tijdens het zoeken via Google op het "Great War Forum" gevonden. Het verhaal achter de 5 graven in de "Churchyard" te Desnie.


 Hello Michael,
My Great Gran Uncle Lance Corporal George Richard Clacy 39078 MM of 1st Btn Royal Berkshire Regiment died 10/12/1918 in Desnie Belgium. A particulary sad story as he and his companions had survived the war and the flu epidemic when during a very cold winter they blocked the gaps under the doors and windows of their billet and lit a fire for warmth, they had no idea that the chimney was blocked and died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

I have not found anything on the battalion war diarys and was wondering if there are any records held in the musuem? On the CWWG it shows that there are only five war graves in Desnie cemetary all for the men who died in this sad incident. I would like to know who the others are that died with him but have only been able to get the details for one other.
A S House Private 46086

Can you or any visitors help with more information?

Thank you very much
