War Dead Leasks

The Dead of Two World Wars

The following information is taken from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Web Site. I think a marvelous undertaking to put the details of Commonwealth citizens killed in two world wars on the web. I did a search on the name Leask and got the following. By clicking on the name itself you get further details. Get onto them at http://www.cwgc.org/

    Dear Mr Leask
    I am currently editing the log of HMS Virginian, an Armed Merchant Cruiser from the First World War. In the log, it is recorded that on April 8th, 1917, Leading Seaman “Leaske” (but more likely Leask) was injured in Liverpool and taken to hospital. This may have been a road accident or even a fight. As ordinary sailors were not often mentioned in the logs, I wondered if this may have been one of your “clan” and if you knew this man’s history.
