Lt. D.T. Wickham RN
The grave of David Wickham stands among all the other stones in Bathford churchyard. It is a war grave of the standard pattern, with a fouled anchor crest denoting it to be a Royal Navy memorial.
The inscription reads: 'Lieutenant D T Wickham. RN H.M.M.T.B. 695 7th March 1944 Age 27'; and at the bottom of the stone is a further inscription, which stimulated an interest for further research:
'Killed in Gallant and Successful Action off the Dutch Coast'.
This small epitaph told that he had been killed in action. Click on the link to download and view ....
