No coincidence

612 of the 1282 WW1 casualties from Lewis have a known grave, of which 224 are buried in the island itself. When you look at the overseas cemeteries, the (Lewis) casualties buried there are sometimes quoted as having lost their lives around the same date. I am going to make a few postings about those cemeteries where this appears to be the case, and explain what happened around that time in the First World War.
