If Admiral Lyon died in the Great War then his date of death is incorrect , the war finished in 1918 , his date of death is listed as March 1919 on your post Littlehand ? . unless of course Lyon did die in 1919 and it's his two sons who were killed in the war , a misleading title at the start of the post may be to blame ? .
