Further Information

CWGC record ...

Gunner Mateer is buried at Railway Dugouts Burial Ground in Belgium, so this memorial stone does not mark his actual burial plot, but it is almost a replica of the headstone in Belgium.

The reference to John 3:16 gives the verse 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.'
