The inhabitants of Clanwilliam would be amazed if they knew that some graves in their town had attracted so much attention on a British Internet site.

Thank you both for an interesting and informative set of posts.

Brian,

That could well be Priest. Steve Watt's says he is interred at St John's Church.

Kind regards

Great to think that after 112 years the final resting place of Pte Priest might have at last been identified?

The power of modern technology knows no bounds!
