Roll of Honour:
Pte. Ashley died at the Military Hospital, Onich, of multiple gunshot wounds. His name is on the Westminster Abbey Commando ROH as being at the Commando Basic Training Centre at the time. Casualties from there were usually taken to the Military Hospital, Onich. He is listed by the CWGC under his Regiment with no mention of a Commando unit. This would be correct if he died in training before completion of his course. Service in a Commando is not established. Source Westminster Abbey Commando Roll of Honour file ref.
