Pawley Grave Marker
This is a rare graver marker made by soldiers for a fallen leader. After the war, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission discarded unofficial grave markers as it established larger cemeteries with regulation headstones. Lieutenant Howard Pawley was killed in action on 12 April 1917 leading his soldiers in the attack on the pimple, a rise of ground at the northern edge of Vimy Ridge.
