V. J. DAVIES

(believed to be an error

aka F.J.DAVIES)

Information about this man has recently been provided by his Great Niece, Jayne Stanley as follows:

35264  PRIVATE FREDERICK JOHN DAVIES of the 16th Battalion, the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Son of Mr. F.R. and Mrs M. Davies of 11 Milton Place, Bideford. Born in Bideford in the December Quarter of  1898 Died 27 September 1918 aged 19. Buried at Fifteen Ravine British Cemetery, Villers-Plouich, Nord, France

    

 I believe the first initial of his name was wrongly transcribed. I have visited his grave near Cambrai and also that of his parents (my great-grandparents) in Bideford Higher Cemetery where he is remembered on their headstone.
