Remembering those who died in Mesopotamia autumn 1914-April 1915

Following on from all of his research into the Norfolk Regiment in Mesopotamia our researcher has found the names of all of the Regiment who died in this theatre of war between Autumn 1914 and April 1915.  With the vast numbers of deaths that happened at Gallipoli and on the Western Front during 1915 it seems apt to remember them here.

Norfolk Regiment Casualties of War buried in Basra War Cemetery or commemorated on the Basra Memorial

Further details of grave numbers and panel commemorations for individual soldiers can be found at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission web site: http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead.aspx
