I have George Farquharson's Death Certificate and his Burial info at Brechin, no headstone as a far as I can see.

Brechin Civic

From 1919 October 14th Brechin Advertiser.

Derek

Following from your contact regarding this man in September I have requested a check for his service file. That may take some time.

The DC does not confirm death due to discharge or war related causes.
Hopefully the file will confirm a link. Will let you know when it turns up.

Will update when further details available.

Well done Derek in finding him.

Well done to all concerned. Reading the article Lieutenant Farquharson certainly deserved his place in the CWGC database.
