Here is Lt Reid RN DSCs CWGC details:

Name: REID, JOHN STEWART GILCHRIST
Initials: J S G
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Lieutenant
Regiment/Service: Royal Naval Reserve
Unit Text: H.M. Submarine L.55.
Age: 33
Date of Death: 09/06/1919
Awards: DSC
Additional information: Husband of Irene Helen Reid, of 50, Morpeth Mansions, London.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Screen Wall. "L.55" grave.
Cemetery: HASLAR ROYAL NAVAL CEMETERY

The location of his burial gives no clues to Lt Reid's death. At first glance you would assume he died of natural causes after the war. In fact he died on a patrol near Kronstadt in the baltic. The bodies of the crew of L55 were recovered by the Soviets in 1928 and returned for burial in the UK.

For more information, and another new memorial that Lt Reid is listed on go here:

I believe L55 entered Soviet service but was lost again with it's Russian crew.

Hi Adam,

I believe your transcription contains an error re William Leonard Reid of the Dorsets. You have him as 'A.L. Reid'.

He was the son of the Rev. John Reid of Foulden Manse.

You are right. I will correct it. It was raining and blowing a gale when I transcribed it so I rushed it a bit.

Regards

The UKNIWM number given for Foulden is incorrect. This number brings up Chapel Carmel in Wales.
There does not seem to be a number listed for Foulden.
Sorry! Crying or Very sad
