RE: Pte Kerr-Wilson - Rifle House
Sorry John that I couldn't have been of more help. It is very interesting that you have his medals. You would think they would have been sent to his family in Canada. It's even more interesting how he came to be the only Canadian buried there. Maybe he got lost from his regiment or something. If you ever find out anything please let me know. I saw that a 15 year old is also buried in Rifle House Cemetery ... very sad.

RE: Pte Kerr-Wilson - Rifle House
Hi John,

I am not a relative of Private Kerr Wilson and don't know anyone who is. One of my friends who visits many of the Canadian War Cemeteries did visit his grave though and took a photo of it. She does this for many of the Canadians buried overseas and adds them to their Canadian Virtual War memorials pages. She also gives the photos to me to add to their Find a Grave memorials with the hopes that they will be found by a family member who is unable to visit the war cemeteries themselves. I try to find out as much information on soldiers as I can to add with a photo so it makes it easier for a family member to find the right person. I had a difficult time finding the memorial for Private Kerr Wilson at first though because they had the last name wrong. After searching under different variations of names I was able to find it and knew by the service number that it was the right person. They did correct the last name when I left a message and added the names of his parents. There is some inconsistency in his records though regarding his correct year of birth so I didn't add anything on it. Is he a relative of yours? Hope to hear if you are.
Take care, Margaret
