Hi Richard Hardwick - and Carlo - I'm not sure where the David Airton link comes in, but I have this scroll, together with Owens Medals, notification of death, and his death plaque. Owen was the treasured younger brother of my Grandma Louie (Louisa Hardwick) and of course, Richard, your Aunt. Grandma Louie passed these onto me when I went to see where Owen lies buried in France. To the best of my knowledge he is not commemorated on any surviving monuments in his home town of Yeadon.
