Referring to your thread about Blok and De Ridder, I made a detour on my way home this evening (a grand total of about 3 kms)

I know the village of Eglinton quite well, and stopped at the Church of Ireland church to take a look around.

I found two more graves that appear to be Dutch alongside a number of other CWGC graves. I will try and describe as best as I can, and try and attach photo's if possible. I know that, technically, it is not strictly Canadian, but please bear with me those of you who read this thread. It may also take more than one post to get everything in.

I will transcribe the headstone details exactly as I saw them, and hopefully they will also show on the photo's.

1st grave:-

KONINKRIJK
DER NEDERLANDEN
H. C. DE JAGER
2E LT VL. M.L.
K.N.I.L. CED
NED. TR. ENGEL.
27-2-1918
18-5-1944
