October 1917 Casualties

October 1917 found the 18th Battalion in the Vimy Sector engaged in working parties. A review of the War Diary for this month does not find any mention of any action in which Privage Swan was involved in that may have caused his death. His service records as of the date of this posting are not available for review to determine the circumstances of his death. Being buried at the Etaples Military Cemetery indicates he died of wounds some time after the incident that led to his wounding.

Rank Surname Forename Date of Death Reg. No.
Private SWAN George 16/10/1917 409654

Private George Swan is not forgotten. He rests in the Etaples Military Cemetery with 10,770 other men and women who died during the First World War.
