Lieutenant Joseph Rayson Drummond 22nd sqn. RAF.The Canadians named Drummond cemetery after him.

Have found a grave of a Joseph Rayson Drummond who is remembered in my local cemetery of Cockermouth, and when i searched his details i found out that he was the first casualty to be buried in Raillencourt by the Canadians so they named the cemetery after him.

Details from the CWGC: http://www.cwgc.org/search/cemetery_...y=61201&mode=1

A big thanks to Peter Bennett for allowing me to use his photograph of Josephs original headstone and cemetery.
