WATTS, Ernest, J.

Marine Ernest Watts died of illness.
 
Notes
The Commando service of Mne. Watts has not as yet been fully established. The CWGC main entry shows Royal Marines, however their Grave Concentration report has this scored out and writen over as Marine Command. The Morthoe and Woollacombe 1939 - 1945 War Memorial, shows Royal Marine Light Infantry. The Naval History website records that he served in 44RM Commando.
