  • I visited john's grave c36 at BonJean Cemetery, Armentiers last week. I left a small wooden cross with David Shaw Baillie, his twin killed at Gallipoli, and a poppy taken from the grave of the unknown warrior. They are now together. I spent 42 years in uniform, this was a very moving experience. Stewart Baillie 11/11/15
