I suggest there is an error with this entry, The above Harry Wilson is listed in St Alban's burial register as dying at the Red Cross Hospital, Louth. His grave is separate from the 27 soldiers who died at Clipstone Camp. I can be contacted at heritage.foresttown@ntlworld.com if the contributer wants to discuss further.
