Unit/ Formation: Royal Marines Light Infantry

Date/s: 14th April 1915
According to my records and to the best of my knowledge Corporal James Dawe was the 1000'th Royal Marine to be recorded as killed in WW1, there would be at least 5,714 more.
If you have any information on Cpl Dawe, a picture perhaps, or any of the other Royal Marines listed or missing from any conflict since 1664 please let me know.
