Headstone F. Boivin


Rifleman Fernand Boivin (age 25) E/110029 (Royal Winnipeg Rifles) was born in Cap Chat, Gaspe County, Quebec, Canada. He disembarked in France on September 8, 1944.

Researching his service records shows that he was killed in action on October 10, 1944 instead of October 13,1944.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission confirmed these findings. Mr. Martin Skelly placed a headstone amendment request into their works programme which will be assessed by one of their works teams when they are next on site. If an amendment in situ is possible this will be carried out in due course however if a replacement stone is required this will add some time to the process.
