 If you look closely at our photo above, you'll see that there has been an alteration to the wording on the memorial in this man's name. The lead letters ( which we think originally said "Welsh" after "16 Batt" have been pulled out and an effort has been made to smooth the surface of the stone so this alteration doesn't show.
