Name: THOMPSON, JAMES
Initials: J
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Gunner
Regiment/Service: Royal Garrison Artillery, 321st Siege Battery
Age: 39
Date of Death: 3 July 1917
Service Number: 94915
Additional Information: Son of the late Alexr. and Mrs. Thompson of Barmeal, Port William, Wigtownshire.
Grave Reference: I. E. 24
Cemetery: Vlamertinghe New Military Cemetery

A detailed survey of Glasserton cemetery in the late 70s identified the memorial inscription for James Thompson and noted its precise location on a plan. When I visited the cemetery I carefully consulted that plan and concluded that the grave stone had fallen on its face some time after that survey.

Looks to be the right man, Ken. Probably errors by the mason carving the stone.
