My great uncle Edgar died from wounds on 5 November, 1918 the day after being shot by sniper fire during the Battle of the Sambre . He was a lieutenant with the 5th West Riding Duke of Wellington's Regiment.
Edgar, from Keighley in West Yorkshire, was the younger son of John and Mabel Clapham. He joined the local Territorial Regiment in October 1914, and he received his commission in January 1917, being gazetted to the rank of lieutenant in August 1918.
Edgar is burried in Awoingt British Cemetery, near Cambrai.
When I retire I hope to pay a visit to his grave.

Recent research has revealed that my great uncle John Bellamy 26855 Pvt Kings Own Royal Lancaster regiment died of wounds 15th January 1918 near Arras is buried in Duisans cemetery, plot V.E. 34 . John was, according to the 1st battalions war diary, one of five casualties following an H.E. and gas shelling attack on the night of the 15th January whilst the battalion were digging new reserve trenches.

A photo of his grave would be fantastic and would add to the testimony that I am writing for my family and in particular my Father, Thomas John who is John's nephew.

I am researching mu great uncle Harry Jukes who died in1917 and is buried at this cemetary. He served with the Royal Garrison Artillery 303 Siege Battery. I believe his brother Frederick Jukes joined the same unit but his records were destroyed in 1940.

Thank you for recording details of my Great Uncle, Rifleman Geroge Eric Prior' buried at Ghissignies. His family never knew he had a grave. A photo would be wonderful please.

In loving memory of my grandfather Henry Williams so tragically killed on the 1st December 1918 after the armistace was signed.Killed on his son Harry's tenth birthday. The words on his headstone in Ypres are in Welsh read "Ac ni bydd gofi mwy" translated "Let there be no more sorrow".His widow like many other World War 1 widows were then asked to send their son's to the second conflict.Gratefully both Henry's sons survived this.

In Memorium

This message is dedicated to the memory of my Great Uncle, Private Reginald Harris Sheldon, 28893, who died on the 3rd of August 1917, aged 21 years, whilst serving with the Sherwood Forresters.

90 years have passed since the end of your war, dear Uncle
Yet, death still prevails like an ugly carbuncle
We remeber you, but did you die in vain ?
Death still persists as does sorrow as does pain.

Sleep in peace, dear Uncle.
Always in my thoughts.
