This is a short video of the erection of a headstone at the grave of Reginald Earnshaw by by Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The event took place at Comely Bank Cemetery in Edinburgh on Monday 6th July 2009, exactly 68 years to the day when Reggie was killed. Records show he was "about 15" when he died, but he may have lied about his age in order to serve his country, perhaps being just 14.

Alf Tubb, a former shipmate performed the headstone unveiling on behalf of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
