    I managed to finally get up to my brother David's resting place & get some photos taken today. David shares his resting place with our older brother & their Mum.
    Buried In Henbury Cemetery Bristol. David received a full military funeral.

    BG, I know that the Glosters were the Londonderry residential battalion at the time of David's RTA which meant they operated all over that county and parts of Northern Tyrone, but I don't know where exactly it happened. Do you by any chance know this as it would be a little extra to put on his ROH entry.

    Jock - David was killed on the main Limavady road going towards Ballykelly. He was based at Shackleton Barracks at the time.

    Thanks BG. I know that stretch of road very well having driven along it countless times. Sadly, there were quite a few RTAs in that area.
    I have added on the location on his ROH entry on my main sheet and it will show online when the webbo does the next update.
