Dear Edgar, I was honoured to visit your grave at Carnieres on 20th August 2016 with my friends Robin Widdows and John Horlick. It was a very peaceful and moving place. I will very soon be taking my wife who would like to see her uncles grave. Her name is Maria Parker nee Jerkovic. Her mothers name was Peggy Holmes, youngest daughter of Harold and Rosina Holmes. Harold was Edgar's brother. We think about you a lot Edgar. Much love. Dave and Maria Parker and family. xxxx

Visted your grave on 16th August 2016. Was a unique and special experience to meet a brave man who gave his life in foreign fields to help save others.

Edgar Holmes is my Uncle, my Mother is Mabel Stanley and I am her son, John Edgar Stanley. I live in Worcester and I remember in the 50s going to handing over ceremony to give the VC to the Wellington Barracks for safekeeping. I have since visited the barracks to view this medal. I was very proud to do so as you can see my middle name is the same as my very brave uncle. Would love to hear from any relatives so please email johnedgarstanley@gmail.com

Hello Edgar. As it is your special day, along with thousands of other service men who died in the dreadful wars, I am especially remembering you and them. What an honour to visit your grave in Carrnierres in Seprember together with my daughter, Amanda. Although it was a very sad occasion I was overjoyed to see your beautiful resting place. It was such an intimate place with only around 50 graves and surrounded by lovely countryside. I think of you often and our country should be so proud that you gave your life saving other injured comrades. Much love from all the Holmes family.

My partner is Kenneth Holmes, who is son of Harold Charles Holmes, whose father was the brother of William Edgar, and we have been researching the family, as are very proud of the estate labourer who joined up and who earnt the VC. Very sad that he gave his life saving his comrades. He was third child of Edward and Rosina. The eldest a daughter, Ivy Dora married an Edgar Frederick Jones, who also perished in 1914 in WW1. Kens dad was exactly 20 months older than William. Would love to be in touch with the neice and other family memebers who leave messages in loving memory of William Edgar. Ken could tell you about Wilfred Pickles interviewing Edward about his brave son. Rest in well deserved peace brave soldier.

Well, Edgar, it is that time of year again when I especially remember you and the many thousands of service men and women who have given their lives to us all so that we may perhaps one day live in peace. I am quite excited because I am in the process of arranging a trip to see you with various members of the family sometime next year and I am so looking forward to it. We are all so proud of you and will never forget your brave sacrifice. All our very special love from Pam and all the Holmes clan. xxx

Amanda, Ali and I are desperate to come and visit you soon - perhaps in the summer - when I can have a really long chat with you. Until then, dear Uncle Edgar - lots of love and kisses - your neice, Pam. xxxxxx

Hello, Edgar - didn't know this site existed until it was found by a very good friend of mine, otherwise I would have sent you all our love a long time ago. I think of you often and say hello to you everyday, as your picture always stares out at me in my lounge. We had a wonderday (no doubt you were looking down on us) when all my family visited Wellington Barracks recently. We were treated with so much respect - it was both a joyous and very sad day - because you are treated as more than a VC hero at Wellington Barracks. Hope all the Holmes clan are getting along well in Heaven - give my very special love to my Dad - he must be so proud up there with you - have you met my daughter's husband, Martyn, yet, who was so tragically lost to us earlier this year - he found the visit to Wellington Barracks extremely emotional and enjoyed every minute. God Bless you, Edgar, and our such special love from all the Holmes family everywhere!!!!!
