My sincere thanks to Margaret Richardson for sending me the following photos of 2 Leicestershire memorials on which Leopold George Frederic Fawcett is listed.

The 1st photo shows Peckleton Church Memorial (name 2nd from top).



These next two are from Kirkby Mallory, which is about 3 miles away from Peckleton. Leopold's parents lived about half way between the 2 villages.
