Private Charles Dixon-Johnson

Private Charles William Dixon-Johnson, 4th ( Territorial ) Battalion, West Yorkshire Regiment. He was killed in action in Flanders on 4th October 1917 during the Third Battle of Ypres, aged 42. He was the son of Cuthbert Dixon-Johnson of Aykley Heads, Durham and we believe he is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial, Zonnebeke, Flanders, Belgium. There is a plaque in his memory on the wall of the church with the inscription ” If Love could Save- Thou hadst Not Died “. The photographs give an idea of the dire state of the Flanders battlefield where the incessant shelling had destroyed the drainage systems.
