Note 1
: There is a name stated on a cross in Geoff Tyson's Last Days of Omine book of drawings.  However, at this point in time, we were unable to make out all letters and numbers on the cross.  What has been determined: R.R.C., the last name ends in 'son' (it looks like there are two letters before 'son'), the rank identifier starts with a 'C' (however, the first name could be mixed in with the 'C'), and the death date starts with a '5' and ends in either '43' or '45' (courtesy of Lou 'Kilmer' Palmer's efforts)
