wrong man killed
« on: March 10, 2008, 08:18:47 PM »
this is a puzzler for those who have a copy of the 16th batts signal section diary.
sgt pennington mentions that little danny maher has been killed[montauban 1st july]hes metioned in the diary a few times,his death was a blow to the whole signal section,because he was very popular.
YET,the sections roll of honour,SDGW and the CWGC list only one man called maher,who was killed in the war,pte 6405 joseph,francis maher. L/cpl 6774 danny maher,C coy survived the war.
have they got the wrong man.
