Notes for 2nd Lt Ralph Thomas BODDINGTON

He lived in the small village of Berkswell and is listed on the war memorial there, as well as on the Roll of Honour mounted at the North Warwickshire Golf Club.

Burial location: Gaza War Cemetery, grave XIV.D.2.

John Elliott, great great nephew, in his official capacity with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Jerusalem, attended a Service of Remembrance and Dedication at Gaza War Cemetery on Wednesday 8th November 2017. [269]

Sam Boddington is pictured with the remembrance cross that he proudly placed in front of Berkswell war memorial on the 100th anniversary of RTB's death. Ralph was Sam's great great great uncle. By extraordinary coincidence, Sam attends the junior school next door to the war memorial. [316]

Ralph's comments appear in his sister Clare's domestic Visitor Book, see [269]

An excellent note on Ralph's life can be found on the Solihull Life website at [315]
