    Hi Steve

    Seems that S 27059 is the same Pte Fred Beckitt , Black Wath aged 41 , son of George and Ann Beckitt, Born Wragby, Wakefield and died 19 JULY 1920 and buried in Hebburn Cemetery ...

    Hes not listed on the Soldiers died index as he died after 1919 but before the 31 August 1921 for the CWGC

    best wishes
    Pat anderson

    Hi, I've been watching the progress of this enquiry with interest, as I'm sure that Paddy intends the Branch to take some action in connection with this War Grave. A family of Andersons, all pipers, and all Black Watch, are buried in this cemetery: Jimmy, the Dad, who was a POW in WWII, and suffered ill health ever after; Andy, who served with the 2nd Battalion in Germany during the 40's/50's, and was at the Depot in the early fifties, prior to his discharge and Robert, who served in Kenya and Berlin with the 1st Battalion. Jimmy ran a piping school from his arm chair in the inglenook and many fine pipers graduated from this academy, not a few going to the Regiment. Nearly all passed through the Tyneside Scottish on their way to Colour Service.

    Goodness, that is a long time ago. The only one that I would have a guess at was an Honorable man with the initials DA.

    As I said, just a guess.
