Marine Joseph Fawcett died of wounds inflicted during the Westkapelle landings on D Day at Walcheren [1a]. Due to weather conditions between the 2nd and 5th November casualties were not able to be evacuated and had to be retained ashore in crowded tented facilities. Eventually more than 70 were evacuated by one LCT on the 6th November, the journey to Ostend taking 10 hours due to the weather. Marine Fawcett died during this journey .

Marine William Sage died during operations at Walcheren. It is likely that he died of wounds as there was a military hospital close to Oostende New Communal Cemetery where some of the wounded, such as Capt. R.G. MACKENZIE, had been taken.
