References and notes

  1. This date differs to that given in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database. On Arthur's remembrance page the date is given as 4 July, which is corroborated with their Grave Registration archive document, shown in the first link. The date of 5 July is also given in the other archive document, shown in their second link, which reveals that official documents can contain typos. Here we have decided to go with the Soldiers Died in the Great War (1921) documentation, even if this may be inaccurate.
