Hey Des,

You have a headstone photo on this record:

That should be on this record instead:

It's apparently "two different" soldiers. :-)

Thanks my friend,

Thank you for taking the time to do this. I did not know John but I did know his brother Lee. Lee was the nicest man and I'm sure his brother was too. Thanks again

I would just like to thank you very much for the picture of my Uncle's grave stone, its like a book and that was the final page that I needed to find. It was so kind of you to do that for me and I am very grateful to you. Keep up your good work.
With best wishes to you. x x

My dad at Henri Chappelle in Belgium. Just thought you'd like to know that a man by the name of Philippe Notermans of Belgium called me today and has bought a WWII jacket that belonged to my dad. He is also going to the cemetery on Nov 1st and place flowers and adopt the grave. He said in Belgium on that day they do this. He has a Facebook page and we are now friends. I told him about what you do also. Maybe you would like to contact him at Philippe1963@live.Be
He is opening a Battle of the Bulge Museum. Janice

Aircrew Remembered
Crew of Manchester lost on 14th March 1942
Des, may I use the photos for the 4 crew buried at Jonkerbos? I am placing a page of remembrance to them prior to a memorial being erected at the crash site later this year. Of course you will be named as supplier.
Many thanks, Kelvin
