    Gunner William John Marks

    I have recently been given information on my grandfather
    He served in world war II In the 91st Field Regiment, The Royal Artillery.
    He was killed in action on 26th November 1943 at the age of 29.
    He & his comrades were based in Italy at the time. He is also laid to rest there.

    RIP Grandad 'A true hero' Lest We Forget. xx

    BG, if you contact the CWGC, at Leamington Spa on (01926)330137, they will obtain a photograph of the h/stone for you, if you go on their website GWGC you can type in the details and you will get the burial location, you used to be able to get a certificate but i don't know if they still do that

    A face to go with a name. Now we know who is being remembered.
