PostPosted: Fri Jul 26, 2013 7:09 pm    Post subject: Lieutenant James BENNETT Reply with quote

Name: James BENNETT
Rank: Temporary 2nd Lieutenant
Regiment: Corps of Royal Engineers
Unit: 129th Field Company
Died: 28 November 1916, killed in action
Age: 30
Buried: Maroc British Cemetery, Grenay, Pas de Calais, France
Grave reference: I. L. 13.
Additional notes: Son of David Bennett, architect, and Margaret Houston.

Notes: James BENNETT followed his father into the architect business being recorded as A.R.I.B.A. (Associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects) on the grave-stone in Saline Cemetery. The house "Maroc", where his mother died in 1937, in Steelend Road, Saline was built in 1923. Margaret must surely have named it after the cemetery where her son lay in France.
