Photographing names on the Tablets of the Missing is not always easy, especially those that are high up. It is unlikely that when screen walls-as we call them in England-were designed with a view to them being photographed.

The staff at Cambridge will, on request, enhance a name with special sand though sometimes their stocks of this are low. Often, very tall step-ladders are needed and for safety reasons, depending who is on duty, members of the public are not permitted to use them. Furthermore, as the refurbishment of the nearby visitor center will not be complete until October 2013, it is even more difficult to secure the loan of the ladders-they are presently kept a considerable distance away from the memorial wall in the temporary visitor center.

A couple of months ago, I purchased an i-pad specifically because the camera function would give better results than any of the digital cameras I own, and even though I have since bought a new digital camera, the i-pad is still preferred.

The best results are obtained shooting at an angle along the name to ensure that the full inscription is captured. It would never be easy to crop just the individual name, but I am working on a way to highlight the required name with a photo-editing program.

I am happy to make available any of my photos to anyone who wishes to improve on them.

Geoff Gillon November 2012.
