Pte Glew is shown as a 10th Battalion casualty although the Battalion was disbanded at the end of August 1944. It is assumed, as he died of wounds, that he was injured in one of the later engagements in which the Battalion was engaged and actually died of his wounds some weeks later. This requires confirmation.
