CWGC to give a soldier back his name

Canadian blogger John Reid today gives an account of a recent success with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (www.cwgc.org) in getting them to agree to replace the initials of a soldier on its database with his full name. The post is at http://anglo-celtic-connections.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/giving-soldier-his-name.html, well worth a read.
