5674325 Pte Hedley J Bowerman, 1st Bn, Ox & Bucks

5674325 Private Hedley James Bowerman of the 1st Battalion, Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, died on the 25th August 1940. He was 20 years old, the son of of James and Elizabeth Bowerman, of Wellington, Somerset. He is buried in Malbork Commonwealth War Cemetery in Poland and was almost certainly a prisoner of war who had been captured earlier that year.

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