My Great Uncle Alfred Hughe's grave is at St-Vaast-En-Auge.
In the year 2000 my mother and father were invited to the town to celebrate the lives of the men. This was as a result of the work of Ludovic Louis. Who also opened a museum within the town to the fallen men.
I wish to contact Louis but unfortunately I have not been able to find his address. I am sending this message in the hope that he may receive it.
This day seems to be an appropriate time to remember them.

My great uncle - 95542 Gunner Charles Frederic Bowyer, was with the RFA - V5th Heavy Trench Mortar Battery. He died on the 1st July 1917 aged 22, and is buried in Roclincourt Cemetary, Arras.

I would be so grateful if anyone has any information about him or photographs. I do have a photograph of his gravestone.

The only thing I really know about him, is that he was engaged my nan. He went to war with his brother (George - my grandad), and asked George to look after Edith (my nan) if anything happened to him. Unfortunately, he died and George came home to Wandsworth and married Edith.

Thank you Great Uncle Charlie for being so brave!
God Bless You xxx

My uncle Bill (William Edward Suddick) is buried in Gosselies Cemetery. His Lancaster bomber was shot down Jan 1/2, 1944. He was on his 89th operation. I'm thinking about visiting his old airfield (Ludford Magna) and then crossing the channel to make a pilgrimage to Gosselies to visit his grave.

Gunner Arthur Bentley, my great uncle, Royal Field Artillery, died 6.11.17 and is buried at Solferino Farm - apparently he was decapitated by a piece of shrapnel along with two others that were with him. I’m guessing they would be W Moran and WEHunt also from the RFA who both died on the same day and are buried at Solferino.

Beste Pierre
Ik vond uw identiteit vermoedelijk terug in mijn stamboom Vandervelden.
Jammer genoeg heb ik weinig fotomateriaal om mijn stamboom aan te vullen.
De foto's die ik heb beperken zich tot mijn overgrootouders.
U bent welkom om mijn stamboom te bekijken.

Met vriendelijke groeten

Dear Pierre Just to say that my wife Chrissy and I are so grateful for your site. Chrissy is the grand daughter of Private Percy Weeks who was KIA on the 18 August 2018. When Chrissy’s grandmother Maud died she left Percy’s medals and letters to and from the front to her daughter Ivy who subsequently left them to Chrissy. I am just in the process of having the medals mounted. We see the photos you have were sent by David Weeks who we hope to contact asap. Chrissy didn’t realise she had any relations on the Weeks side of her family still alive. Our thanks again.

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.
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.

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.
