  • Percy Partridge BIGWOOD was my great uncle. He died of pneumonia on Lemnos Island, Greece. Buried at East Mudros Cemetery . I have visited his grave there. I hold his Identity Tag which is a leather disc inscribed with his name and number. Metal was too precious to use for tags. I was here at the Museum on 24 April 2017
