Sergeant John Mitchell Sinclair, 10th Btn. Killed in action 30th July 1918
Aged 24. Son of James Hugh and Helena Sinclair, Grange, South Australia.
I stopped to look at 2 Australian war graves
cemeteries near Amiens, France and found three Sinclair boys who didn't make
it home during world war 1. I was very impressed to see the condition that the
two sites were in. They are still beautifully maintained by the commonwealth
war graves commission some eighty years after the war. Do any of these boys
belong to you??
