Gnr. Burns, 6 troop, was killed during the action at Salerno.

We have a document in our gallery with more details. He was "killed in action at Dragone Hill, Salerno." It goes on to say that he was "buried as far as is known by the 6th Yorks and Lancs on the forward slope of hill."  In the same document against the death and burial of Fus W. Davies it adds " (see 1612571 Pte. Burns. C. ) "

Follow this link to view that document in our Gallery: Casualties and Missing.
