S/42343 Pte John Husband, 1st Batt. Black Watch has been forwarded as a case, on Mark's behalf, to CWGC / MOD as a non comm death due to service related causes (GSW Chest). He was married with four children. His details are now in the system.

I am making further enquiries regarding his place of burial.
Will update when further details available.

Well done Mark in finding him.
