I am interested in Military Headstones to British Airborne Forces 1940-47.
When visiting cemeteries/churchyards I take as many pictures of any military headstones as I can, but I do not drive so can not normally complete any requests!

However, I will be posting (eventually) pictures of headstones I have collected in my travels which anyone can use, however please, a polite note, if they are to be used for a publication etc I would appreciate being credited for the photo and a quick one liner informing me of such.

RE: Fleurbaix Communal Cemetery
Hello Andy,

Beside taking pictures of wargraves, I have now started with my wife a small business in which we are placing dayfresh flowerboucquets on wargraves, memorials, cemeteries from Ypres to the Somme. I have started this business due to the many requests from people around the world.

This service can be found on our website:

In the customer section you will find an example of a commemoration I did last week for a Scottish client in Dunkirk.

If this service would interest you please drop me an email:

It would be great if you could share this with people you know.

best regards,
Claude Verstraete

You're welcome. The photos were taken last year but had only recently got round to adding them. No need for you to apologise.

Thank you for your kind words, it was my honor and privilege, Andy.

The cemetery is very well maintained and Assisi can be seen in the distance.

RE: Longside Cemetery
On the day we visited, we met a older gentleman who came over to talk to us when he saw us at the CWGC graves. It turned out that he was present at the burial of the Glider airmen, whose coffins arrived on a low loader. Apparently, on a commemoration last year, the lady who drove the low loader also visited the cemetery. What a small world, and the chances of such a meeting must be millions to one!
I've also added other CWGC graves to Longside. If you'd wish to have these transferred to you, please let me know.

RE: Private Frederick Henry Ward, East Ham

The person researching for information to be used on the Yorkshire Regiment Remembrance website saw your photo of George Henry Ward's headstone and sent me the reference.

Unfortunately, the Yorkshire Regiment soldier is
Frederick Henry Ward, who (as yet) isn't covered in the Find a Grave website.

Best wishes

Private Frederick Henry Ward, East Ham
I run a website for the remembrance of soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment,
The website is entirely non-commercial.
You have shown a photo of the headstone (screen wall?) commmeorating Private Frederick Henry Ward in East Ham (St. Mary Magdalene) Churchyard on the Find a Grave website.
I would very much like to use this photo on the Yorkshire Regiment Remembrance website.
I would, of course, acknowledge you as the author and link back to the Find a Grave website.
I would be very grateful if you would allow me to use your photo.

With best wishes

Edward Nicholl
