Hampshire & Isle of Wight / CWGC Headstone Given - Capt John Henry Nicholson.
« on: Wednesday 01 November 17 18:19 GMT (UK)  »
FIRST WORLD WAR CAPTAIN GIVEN CWGC HEADSTONE MORE THAN A CENTURY AFTER HIS DEATH.

An army captain who died during the First World War will be honoured in a ceremony at Winchester (West Hill) Old Cemetery tomorrow (Thursday 2 November), with a CWGC headstone 102 years after he died.

Captain John Henry Nicholson, of the Army Ordnance Department (AOD), died aged 51 at 7.30am on 6 November 1915 at Avington Park Camp, Hampshire, when he accidentally shot himself while cleaning his own revolver before going on duty.

At the time, authorities never reported his death to the CWGC. This meant John was never given a Commission headstone or remembered on the Roll of Honour.

However, thanks to Johnís Great Grandson, David Nicholls, who researched his death and brought it to the attention of the CWGC, John can now be commemorated by the Commission......etc etc
