6150324 Pte William Frederick Limb, Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers

6150324 Private William Frederick Limb of the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers died on this day - 27th October - in 1944. He was, according to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the "son of Henry Edward and Mildred Limb of Herne Hill and the husband of G. Limb."

William Limb was born in the Republic of Ireland but was living in south east London when he enlisted. The UK Army Roll of Honour 1939-45 notes his rank as Craftsman.

William died in the UK and is commemorated in West Norwood Cemetery where, presumably, he was cremated.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
