I'm retired and have nine grandchildren who I spend a lot of time with. One of my interests is connecting with people overseas on the internet who will visit war graves and take photos for family members who are unable to go there themselves.|

|Kathryn Lake Hogan||Memorial #56517663|
Memorial #56517663 is for my great-uncle, Leslie Lake. Les was a private in the Canadian army during WWII. He was not married, and had no children. I have much more information about him. Would transfer ownership of his memorial to me please?

Hi im Joanna, I am seeking the name of the person who requested the photo of the gravestone in the war graves in Italy. I think they may be my family. Please could you pass on my email if possible.
thank you very much

I was so pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful photo you took of Harold Hay's gravestone. I never expected that it would happen so quickly, especially in Italy! Many thanks for taking the time to visit his resting place.

Hi Margaret, thanks for your quick reply. I am distantly related to Angus Gunn through my fathers family tree. I really don't have any more information to offer other than his place of birth was Castletown in Caithness in Scotland. I think the whole family emigrated to Canada but then returned home as his mother died back home in Caithness. Thanks for the photo.

You are more thank welcome to share the photos with the memorial groups. Please thank the young Italian lady for her kindness and efforts. Through the help of both of you, these men will not be forgotten.
Your Uncle that perished in Normandy, I would assume he was part of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. They made the landings at Juno Beach. My Uncle Andy was part of that division, he served with the 14th Field Artillery. Also, James Doohan, Scotty of Star Trek fame, was an officer in the 13th Field Artillery of the same divison. What was your Uncle's name.
Mother lost her brother, Joseph, in October of 1944. He was killed in Holland. I have attached a link to his Find a Grave website. A Dutchman was kind enough to go to the cemetery and take pictures. Here is a link to the site:
If you could, please edit Benny's page to show his DOB as November 3, 1917.
Thank you and best wishes,

I just viewed the grave of Angus in Okotoks Cemetery and noted that you had left a candle for him. Do you have any connection to him or his family?

Thank you for posting a picture of Benny's grave. I have added a picture of him. He was my mother's first husband; they were married for only a couple of weeks when he went overseas.
|John||RE: Pte Kerr-Wilson - Rifle House|
THanks for getting back to me. No I am not a relative, but I collect medals and death plaques, and happen to own the one to this man. He is known in a couple of books as the Lone Canadian, as there are no others in this area, and the Canadians did not see action here at this time, so his presence in Rifle House is a mystery.
Hope to find out one day..!

|John||Pte Kerr-Wilson - Rifle House|
My name is John from UK, and I was wondering, seeing your memorial, if you are related to Pte Kerr-Wilson, or perhaps know someone who is..?
Hope to hear from you,
