Lindsay Buchanan Scott

As can be seen from the Commonwealth war graves information below Lindsay lived with his wife and children at Ormdale Lodge, Elham. Bill Watson remembers the house, now named Morton House and he accompanied me when I took these pictures of the property. Bill especially remembers which house it was as one day a heard of cows trampled the lawn and Mrs Scott was none too pleased!

Historical Information:

During the 1914-18 war Le Havre was one of the ports at which the British Expeditionary Force

disembarked in August 1914, and, except for a short interval during the German advance in 1914, it remained No. 1 Base throughout the war. By the end of May, 1917, it contained 3 general and 2 stationary hospitals, and 4 convalescent depots. During the latter part of the 1939-45 war Le Havre was used as a supply and reinforcement base. There are now over 1,500, 1914-18 and 350, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this cemetery. In addition, special memorial records the names of 144 who lost their lives when the hospital ships 'Galeka' and 'Salta' and the transport ship 'Normandy' were sunk in the Channel by the enemy, between

1916-18 and whose bodies were not recovered.
