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

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
