Default Private Charles Torr Axworthy 10th Canadian Infantry killed Vimy Ridge April 9th 1917

Private Charles Axworthy killed Vimy Ridge April 9 1917 10th Canadian Infantry

Going to France at weekend to visit the grave of my great uncle Charlie Axworthy - Canadian Infantry - killed Vimy Ridge aged 28 April 9th 1917. My 2 sons and I will be the first family members to visit his grave as we have only recently found out he is buried at Nine Elms Cemetery near Arras. Told all my life he had no known grave. Poignant visit when I hope to 'rebuild' Uncle Charlie's life and make sure he lives on in my grandchildren and their descendents. Charlie was one of many to leave England in 1908 to go to Canada to work on the railroads. He went with his childhood pal John Hodge (Canadian Infantry killed September 1916) who enlisted with him when war came. A bit of a comfort to know they had eachother in that hell hole until John died. They came from the most beautiful village by the sea near Plymouth Devon called Noss Mayo and are on the war memorial at Noss Church.
