Duke of Wellington's (West Riding Regiment)

Died on war service
Died in the United Kingdom
Roll of Honour:
Lance Corporal Harry Tunstall , 101 troop, died during the very short period his unit was redesignated as 5 Special Service Bn., before reforming again as No 6 Commando. His death is recorded as by drowning in the Westminster Abbey Commando ROH database.
We have an annotated postcard in our gallery which shows an image of Loch Shiel on the front. On the reverse are the words, "Where Curly was drowned while canoeing, during experimental work March 1941." [View image here]
This annotated card was in the personal memorabilia of a member of 101 troop, and by cross referencing with our Commando Roll of Honour March 1941, this has to relate to the death of LCpl. Tunstall.
