J A Wilson, Commonwealth War Grave, St Hilda's Church, Danby, England

Only recently noticed that a sign appeared in 2020 on the entrance to St Hilda's Church, Danby, signifying the graveyard is now the site of a Commonwealth Grave. The grave has apparently been there for several years, but I hadn't noticed it. It is the war grave of a J. A. Wilson who died in 1943 aged 23. He was a driver with the Royal Army Service Corps. A very beautiful and peaceful final resting place for him.
