saw this question: Imelda Walsh (Etats-Unis)

I am hoping I get the chance to visit my Gran Uncle grave Michael Corcoran 2nd Battalion in zwevegem communal cemetary. Would like a close up photo of his gravestone if possible. I grew hearing my dad talk about him, glad we were able to locate his grave and know he was never forgotten

Do you already have a pic? If not I can go to zwevegem and make some pics? KInd regards.

This is the story of how Roger and his 2 companions were killed on 1st September 1944 in Albert, France
Roger RAWLENCE Trooper of 2nd Household Cavalry. From a French eye witness acount
Le 1er Sept en Albert. Les trois hommes G.A.F EBBAYE, R. RAWLENCE et G.SNOWDON, tous trios le 1er Septembre 1944 en libererant Albert. Les deux premiers ages de 23 et 24 ans ont ete atteints par un obus qui a percute leur vehicle blinde, le troisieme qui n'avait que 19 ans a vraisemblablement ete tue par balles. Ces trois-la ont ete victimes d'un des derniers ilots de resistance allemands situes dans ce qui est aujourd'hui la Rue de Liberation.
Translation:
The 1st September in Albert. The 3 men, G A F EBBAYE, R RAWLENCE and G SNOWDON these three on 1st September were liberating Albert. The first two aged 23 and 24 were hit by a shell that struck their armoured vehicle, the third was only 19 was probably shot dead. These three were victims of one of the last pockets of resistance located in what is today the Rue de Liberat.
The conclusion therefore is that Roger and his driver G Ebbaye were blown up by a shell which was aimed at their armoured car probably from a point of elevation, probably the church tower and the third man G Snowdon was shot - possiby trying to exit the vehicle or may not have been connected with them at all and shot in a separate incident? My mother Faith PAGE ( nee RAWLENCE) says the story her mother was given is that the "sniper" was high up in a church tower in Albert.

My great uncle was Arthur James Craske born 1889 a widow and father to Lilian Daisy born 1911. His battalion was heavily depleted with the highest ranking officer in charge a Captain when on 3 September 1916 the men from St Pancras Rifle Brigade (London) were tasked to secure a ridge flanked by other battalions. It was expected to be “straightforward”. He was killed that day with many others and buried in a temporary grave. Luckily his body was later identified and he was reburied at Andre Valley cemetery. There is no message on his gravestone from his family and he was never mentioned or talked about by the next generations. Luckily we found him again and one day we will get to northern France and pay our respects.

Good Morning Pierre,
I'm having trouble finding your email.

I have been looking at your wonderful In Memory web page, a total credit to you. I see at the bottom if I send some photographs related to Percy that you will kindly add them. I have some photographs, if I copy them and send them to you are you still able to do this? My uncle is buried in Adanac Cemetery sect 3 row F4 died 23rd Aug 1918
Kind Regards

Hi, the image you have in Charmes showing 2/Lt Patrick Jocelyn Cunningham is actually a picture of my wife's Great Uncle, Archie Dexter. We left this picture at his grave some years ago. I am currently writing an article about him and would like to know where his plane crashed if you have this information. I am also seeking pictures of the other crew members also buried in Charmes: Keith Attwater; Herbert Holmes and Hugh Ritchie.

bonjour, je suis adjointe au maire à la mairie de Marolles 14100 calvados. Dans notre cimetière se trouve la tombe du soldat britannique Arthur Cook 2069108 driver royal engineers décédé le 15 juin 1940. Nous prenons soin de cette tombe et la fleurissons à chaque commémoration. Je tente de faire des recherches sur ce soldat afin d'honorer sa mémoire, sur son unité, sa mission, les circonstances de son décès, les circonstances de son enterrement sur notre commune et également des informations sur son histoire personnelle (son métier, le métier de ses parents et s'il avait des frères et soeurs). Mon projet est de réussir à faire mettre en forme un document sur ce soldat pour le présenter aux élèves de notre petite école, le publier sur notre gazette locale et éventuellement disposer ce document auprès de sa tombe afin que les gens puissent connaître son histoire. je suis également à la recherche d'une photo. Je vous remercie donc par avance de venir vers moi si vous avez des informations à partager. D'avance merci pour votre aide

As a little boy 50+ years ago my grandmother RIP used to let me play with a few medals in front of her fire. When she passed my sister gave me the medal. It was awarded to Private J H Wood 13198 . He severed in the Leicestershire Regiment.
How my grandmother came about this is unknown.
One theory is that her mother took in and raised a baby boy left on her doorstep. Maybe this is that boys medal.
Even if not, I am still going to his grave to pay my respects.
If anyone finds this message. Feel free to look me up.

Bless them all..

Pierre,
I want to thank you so much for the immense amount of time, effort and no doubt expense you have go to, making your invaluable site available to everyone.

I hope most sincerely that you are formally recognised for your commitment to those who have given their lives in the theater of war.

I am an avid family researcher and have utilised your site (sadly) more times than I care to count.

My own great uncle, Private Samuel Stapleford, was killed in action in Belgium 7 June 1917 at the age of 23. He was born 23 March 1894 in the small village of Laguna, New South Wales, Australia.

Once again, thank you so much.

Warmest regards,
Rosenne.

In relation to the crew of Lancaster ND352, shot down near Auneau on 11.06.1944, I found this entry in my father's diary: "June 11 – Attacked railroad centre in Paris – lost “T” – Stronach and crew. His navigator was from Peterborough was here sitting on my bed Thursday night eating toast with us. He was a good officer."

Hi Pierre,
The residents of our street Kings Road St Albans UK are organising a Street Memorial to those young men from our street that died in the Great War. We are also writing a pamphlet with details of their lives. Archie Faulder is included in this number and is burried at Outrijve Churchyard. I note that you have been in touch with relatives of his who have supplied you with a photo. If you still have their details would it be possible for you to forward them my email address so that I can share what I have written with them and let them know of our plans.

Thank you! Judy Sutton

Thank you for your still excellent homepage.

At 9/3-2017 I write to you for information about 219208 Private Harold Payne, 42nd Battalion Canadian Infantry, dead 2 november 1917.

And I receive unbelievable excellent information, which make me able to follow his life from birthday the 10/3-1897 in Barnstaple, England, to his family home in Toronto Canada, his drafting the 28/8-1915 in Smiths Fall Ontario, his arrival with SS Baltic to England the 31/5-1916, his campaign at Vimy Ridge with 42nd Battalion at Oktober 1916 and accordingly the War Diary to the disaster at night between the 2/11- 3/11-1917, where he with 7 officers and 200 of other ranks attacking a Pill-Box at Farm House ruin, half mile south of Passchendaele.

40 killed, 10 died of wounds, 120 wounded, 4 missing, 33 unharmed.

219208 Private Harold Payne was between the dead. "Killed in action".
He was 20 year, 7 month, 23 days old.
Resting at Passchendaele New British Cemetery, plot A, row 1, grave 21.

This is not just a ordinary day, this is Harold Payne birthday the 10/3-1897.

In regard to him and his family.

"To live in the hearts of those he loved, is not to die".

Denmark 10 marts 2020

Yours sincerely Preben Nielsen
