Tour Scotland Video Sewed War Grave Sleepyhillock Cemetery Montrose

Tour Scotland video of Private, Leonard Sewed, gravestone in Sleepyhillock Cemetery on ancestry visit to Montrose, Scotland. Leonard served with the Pioneer Corps and died on the 13th of February 1941. In the early part of World War II the Pioneer Corps was apparently the only British military unit in which enemy aliens could serve. Thousands of German and Austrian nationals joined the Pioneer Corps to assist Allied war efforts and the liberation of their home countries. They typically were Jews and political opponents of the Nazi Regime who had fled to Britain, including film production designer Ken Adam, writer George Clare, and publisher Robert Maxwell.
