sadly the date of death on the gravestone coincides with the first very heavy luftwaffe bombing raid on Birmingham and the surrounding areas 22/23 November 1940. As a five yr old I experienced the bombing just 5 miles away from Alvechurch. The casualties were very high that night among uniformed personnel and civilians.
