Remembrance – John Hudson

Mont Huon Military Cemetery just outside Le Tréport contains 2349 burials from the town’s military hospitals. These unfortunate men wounded in the front never made it home from the hospitals.

We are now paying our respects to a 2nd man from the 10th battalion Sherwood Foresters. It is likely that John Hudson, also commemorated on the Bourne Memorial, knew Ernest Durham and was unfortunately died only one day after him on the 18th August 1918, aged 27.

John G Hudson was married to Annie and was living in New Basford Nottingham when he enlisted although he was born in Haconby.

Rest in Peace
