Not in Roll of Honour - Stornoway (update)

William Arthur Bawden, referred to in the previous post, does not qualify for a CWGC war grave. He died on 5 September 1920 at the age of 25, having hanged himself. The magisterial inquiry showed that no indication of his state of mind was evident beforehand. We shall never know what did prompt William to take his own life.

His death was not attributable to his war service, but that does not mean we will forget his valiant contribution.
