Date: Sat, 15 Jan 2005 20:26:58 -0000
I have in my possession a "death penny" with the name John Edward SHAW.
I have looked him up on the Commonwealth War graves commission web site and
he appears to be the son of George Edward SHAW and Jane SHAW and lived at 23
Burnley Street, Chadderton, Oldham in 1917.
He was killed on the 20th August 1917 aged 27, in Belgium during WW1. His
body was not found and is remembered on the Tyne Cot Memorial panel 8 and
162, Zonnebeke, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. He attained the rank of Corporal
in the Royal Engineers, 2nd Special Coy, Welsh Regiment (formerly 2nd bn)
If this penny belongs to anyone's family you are researching, please e-mail
me and let me know. I will post it off to you with the information I have
