Col Peter Young briefs two snipers, Bernard Machin and Joe Leedham, in the Orne River area, 17th June 1944
Owner: Andy Maines
With the surname shown on the grave as CROFT and on the CWGC as CROFTS, I have discovered there is a Marriage Registry entry in 1938 for Crofts A.P. in the Manchester South District of Lancashire

Arthur died whilst in the UK, possibly from wounds sustained earlier or maybe in a training accident. David Henry Hill, also 12 Cdo, is listed as being killed in training on 4 Dec 1942. Could there be a link?
