Photo of burial site

I sent you my heartfelt thanks for posting a photo of my grandfathers burial site. He name was Derek Charles Ward and is buried in the Rheinberg War Cemetery. He has been a mystery to me my whole life and information has only recently been made available to me from a war historian who provided me with the graveyard details. I have just stumbled across this today whist doing a search of the cemetery. Any scrap of information about him just means so much to me. I at least now have some details about his last flight, his crew, one photo (which I added next to your photo of the gravestone) and the letter from the king to his widow, my grandmother. Thanks so much for making my day.

Picture of grave Hotten War Cemetery Belgium
Hello Des, thank you for your excellent work. I am researching family friend Flight Lieutenant George Simpson Henderson who was killed in action 13/08/44. He lies in Hotten War Cemetery. You have kindly posted a photograph of a head stone in the Find a Grave website but unfortunately the picture is of another serviceman, a F Henderson who also is interred in Hotten Cemetery. Would you happen to have the correct picture in your records so that we can correct this. Many thanks, David Murray

Many thanks for the photo. The family of his co-pilot is planning a visit to the site of the crash in the next few weeks.
Today, as you know, we commemorate the anniversary of D-Day. May we never again see death on such a scale.
