Remembered with honour Perth Cemetery (China Wall) Cemetery: Plot I, Row K, Grave 18.
He enlisted in Watford, and was formerly Private 2256 Royal Bucks Hussars. He appears to have no medals, and was killed in action. Unfortunately, Henry’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
