EDMONDS, Arnold Basil Lindsay

40 Cdo. RM

Lieutenant Arnold Edmonds died in Hong Kong. He is buried in Hong Kong Cemetery, formerly known as HK Happy Valley Cemetery and HK Colonial Cemetery. 

Notes
In the book The Light Blue Lanyard 50 years with 40 Commando RM, the author Maj. J.C. Beadle, MBE, MC, refers to a Lt. A. E. Edwards dying at this time as a result of a motorcycle accident while escoring a motor convoy in the New Territories, Hong Kong. I can find no trace of this Officer in the AFM ROH and suspect he may be referring to Lt. Edmonds.
