Adegem Canadian War Cemetery - Funeral Service for Pte Kenneth Donald Duncanson

Buried exactly 72 years after he died. September 14, 1944 - September 14, 2016.


Over 70 years after Kenneth disappeared, on Remembrance Day 2014, two Belgian hobbyists searching for military artefacts made a discovery with their metal detectors near the hamlet of Molentje: old machine gun magazines, and next to them, human remains. Other artefacts were later found at the site as well, among them a gold signet ring with the initials "KDD". After extensive historical, archaeological, genealogical, and anthropological analysis and research, on April 27, 2016 the remains were positively identified as those of Private Kenneth Donald Duncanson.
