|Bio and Links|
I am Bob, 76 years old, living at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi.|
I only use my electric bicycle and public transportation. I retired from the United States Navy on Friday May 13, 1977. I have always thought of Friday the 13th as my lucky day, and it still is.
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
I add interments when I find them, if they are from your family, I want to transfer them to you because you have more information than I do.
If you are maintaining a section of military information elsewhere, I want you to maintain the memorial sites that I posted too. Again you have more info than I do.
I finished photographing the Lord Ridge Cemetery. I was unable to get a complete listing from the City Council. After that I would have been able to tie in my photographs with the entire "population" of the cemetery. There will be lots of photos of the headstones that would not be posted because about 60+ percent are not available or has been damaged beyond decyphering. I am honored to have been able to post the memorial and headstone photograph of the "Father of his country, Belize" the Right Honorable George Cadle Price. I have over 5000 photo, and I will need to type a spreadsheet and post the photos at a future date.
I am also happy to say that I have photographed every grave site at the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery (up through October 2010) and the Battleground National Cemetery both in Washington, D.C.I have also Posted every grave site at St. Elizabeth's Hospital (West Campus).
I photographed and posted all missing memorials and photos at Bethesda Cemetery, Camden, Arkansas. I did the same for Shiloh Cemetery, Union County, Arkansas.
I have also photographed the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame).
I have photographed all of the headstones at Chungkai War Cemetery, another POW cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame, also.
In December 2012, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Labuan War Cemetery, Malaysia; except for Section R where I missed some.
I photographed all of the headstones at Clark Cemetery, Philippines and have posted them, through December 2014.
One day I will be honored by my name being included on the Fallen Find-A-Grave Contributors Memorial.
I am also a War Graves contributor.

Wow, I did not realize this was such a large project.
I just noticed that those 3 are the only CWGC burials not currently listed under Lord Ridge, and you had uploaded photographs of the others. Probably they will come up in your list sooner or later.
Keep up the good work. I admire volunteers who go the extra mile like you.

I noticed that you recently visited this cemetery, and photographed most of the CWGC graves there. I was wondering if you also happened to find these ones;
