An unusual headstone commemorating 61-year-old lieutenant colonel James Barry of the Army Remount Service, formerly of the King’s Dragoon Guards.
Officers of the Army Remount Service were generally members of the landed gentry, experienced huntsmen and ageing cavalrymen. The equestrian painter Sir Alfred Munnings was among their number.
It’s strange to see the date of death in 1920 on the Military grave. Where is this?
Deaths up to 31 August 1921 are eligible for CWGC recognition
