Simon Newbery, Vet. UK emailed me with this photo and the following information:
This grave marker of a WWII War Dog (Hambone Jr.) is near Simon’s parents home in Alresford, Winchester, Hants, England along side a famous River walk called “The Dean.” This town was used for the D-Day invasion.
By posting this photo and information, I am hoping someone who reads this will be able to further enlighten us.
