Battlefields Tour 22nd-25th March 2009

Loos Memorial, France

John William Lewis - Great-Great Grandfather of Rebecca Hoare

Loos Memorial

On our battlefield visits we try to visit the graves or memorials of ancestors of the students who are on the trip. The first of our visits was the Loos Memorial where we hoped to find Rebecca Hoare's great-great grandfather John William Lewis. After consulting the cemetery index and plan, Rebecca found him recorded on the memorial wall at the rear of the cemetery.

As the name was on the memorial wall this means John Lewis' body was never found.
