I also observed that at the end of the list of names for WW1 there are two names added for WW2, viz.
Pte. A.J. DAVIES and C.F.N. G.T. DUDDRIDGE;

Also two names out of alphabetical order at the end of the list of names for WW2, viz.
Tpr. W.M. STARK and M/N R. JEFFERY.

I assume that these names must have been notified after the original list of names had been prepared. For ease of reference I have included these in their correct alphabetical order.
