Thanks for sharing this news. Hopefully he will be identified and I am sure he will be buried with honour.
Whatever its just an opinion.
Good, that its in a language the majority here speaks fluently
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
The Salvage and Identification Department of the Army (BIDKL) north of Bemmel has the remains of a British soldier from World War II salvaged. The field tomb was found in a pasture during the construction of a ditch. It is the second discovery of a British soldier in a short time.
The British authorities have been informed about the discovery. In the laboratory of the BIDKL in Soesterberg is the identity of the soldier tried to figure out, so his relatives to make an end to years of uncertainty about his fate.
The BIDKL is provisionally that the soldier was killed in the aftermath of Operation Market Garden and served with the British 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division. In September and October 1944 yielded the ground forces around Bemmel heavy fighting with German units. This staged a counterattack on the Allied bridgehead north of Nijmegen.

Another family have a answer now. Makes me happy- but kind of sad at the same time. Because It makes me think of all the missing soldiers, still in a unknown grave.
Thanks for the link.
