Uploader's Notes:

Son of Johanne S. E. Larsen, of Erikshoj, Stengaardens, Mark, Buddinge, Denmark, and the late L. P. Larsen.

Bn war diary for 20-24 Mar 17 notes 15 men wounded. Probable that Christen died of wounds received during this period and probable that his hasty grave was destroyed during the Batlle for Vimy Ridge.

Info on Danish born Miramichi soldiers reviewed and corrected by LCol Gorm Martin Larsen, Danish Army, while in Kabul in Apr 2012. Thanks Gorm.

records show that he was KIA on 6 April
