L/Sgt. B. COOPER
The West Yorkshire Regiment
Service No: 1147928
Died 11th November 1945
Age 25

The above L/Sgt. Cooper is listed towards the beginning of this thread as his was a CWGC Burial. (Section R. Grave 1359)

Private D. P. JARVIE
The Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders
Service No: 14473243
Died 1st January 1954
Age 26



This stone is rather unusual in the fact that there's just over eight years between the deaths of the men and also that there's a double, interlinked insignia at the top. I find it strange that Sgt. Cooper doesn't have his own stone as he would have been buried there first - unless he did, and for some unknown reason, a new stone was erected at a later date. It is unknown if there was any family relationship between them.

In 1945 HMS Vanguard was still in a Clyde shipyard. This man may have been a shipyard worker?

JAMES ANGUS BROWN McKENNA, R.A.
Killed in India 6th December 1933
Age 23
Son of Angus Brown



Note that although on the inscription James Angus Brown McKenna is noted as son of Angus Brown, his surname would appear to be McKenna. (Unless father Angus's middle name was Brown?)

Major Prendergast's stone sits right in the middle of the back row of this small section (part of Section N). All the others are to Australians.
