We know the Weaste plot number of a Type D Burial, rather than many unidentified common graves.  This indicates there was a headstone and we need to know if the inscription is still legible, or not.
EDIT
There is a Headstone on George's plot, but no inscription.  His Grandaughter will approve a secondary new Gallipoli style Headstone in due course.
