The DLI Roll of Honour shows Pte Allison as a member of 1st Battalion, DLI. This should read 10th Battalion.

CWGC records show him as born in Yorkshire - it is believed that this is because, although a birth was registered in Teesdale, his parents lived in Startforth which is on the Yorkshire side of the Tees about a mile from Barnard Castle.
