Both of the two LESTER MATHISONS I sent would have been of age during World War II. The first would have been about 43 and the other would have been about 23. Again, I find no record of anyone by that name KIA in Germany and, if he had been, he wouldn't have been buried there. All fatalities were shipped back to France, Belgium, Holland or Luxenbourg for burial. One of the main reasons was that it was feared the Germans would disinter and/or desecrate any burials - particularly those Germans whose homes had been destroyed in the Allied advance.
