The next soldier that I chose to investigate was to be WMC Woodhouse (on the Wyrley gates). Woodhouse was picked on the basis that one of my few regular blog readers is named Woodhouse and he asked me about the Woodhouse on the memorial gates, after he read the article on Joseph Masters (the photograph of the plaque with Masters’ name on it in that article also showed that of Woodhouse). What came from my basic research was that there is another error on the gate plaques and that, yet again, the real Woodhouse is as elusive as many of the other men on the memorial. https://wyrleyblog.wordpress.com/wyrley-landywood/great-wyrleys-fallen-wwi/lcpl-reginald-coley-woodhouse-catching-the-irish-mail/
