HMS ‘Forte’ – J.W. Lane (MM) – D/KX107478

Living History

I found this mans grave in my local cemetery (see attached photos)

casualty details here http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/2698675/

I’ve tried to find out more about him via the internet, but not being very good regarding Naval matters i have turned up very little.

I now understand HMS Forte was a shore based establishment, and one site i found showed he ‘died of wounds’ but other then that i’m struggling.

I would appreciate it if anyone can provide anymore info or point me in the right direction.

I would especially like to find out how he received his MM, or anything about the incident in which he received his fatal wounds.

Thanks in Advance

Cheers

Scott
