The permanent resting place for Lieutenant-Colonel Donald A. MacKenzie and his comrades is the Canadian Military Cemetery in Holten, Holland.

Grandson of Donald Mackenzie, born 1821 Clashnessie, Assynt, and his wife Catherine Macleod, who emigrated to Bruce County, Ontario, Canada, and brought up a family there. See also National War Memorial of Canada.

Information from Marian MacLeod.

  1. I'm confused by the DSC reference. That is a naval award and MacKenzie was in the Army. There is no reference to it on the Commonwealth War Graves commission database entry either.
    Is this a mistake or should the CWGC be contacted to correct their records.


  2. Adam, I have today been sent information regarding your note above which states that this is not a mistake and that we should see It is not a mistake, see the following page 

    Thanks to Andrew for this information.
