Bonjour

Je recherche des informations sur John TRENTESAUX décédé à Arras en 1917 et sur son frère Piter décédé en 1918 à Château Thierry en 1918.
Le nom de leur 1/2 frère Albert décédé à Corbie en 1916 apparait sur votre relevé du cimetière de cette ville.
Albert est né du 1er mariage de Napoléon TRENTESAUX avec CHAMBET Maria
John et Piter sont nés du 2ème mariage (à BOSTON, Etats Unis) de TRENTESAUX Napoléon avec AUBIN Marie Victoria
Ces noms ont été relevés sur une tombe située dans le cimetière de Leers 59115 (France)
Je vous remercie par avance pour votre aide

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.

My dad was an RCAF Instrument Technician posted to Gransden Lodge air base in 1944. 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.

Lance Corporal Joseph Wilson. Killed 25/8/1914.
I am particularly interested in this soldier and his story of been executed by a German Firing Squad, thus saving the life of a child who had been accused of sniping.
As I am researching all the soldiers who are on the Penrith War Memorial, Joseph is named on it. I want to be able to verify this story. Can you help?

I am looking for information on a Free French airman who was killed in a mid-air collision with another Free French airman over my home village in North East England. He was on a training flight with 80 OTU and was killed on 13th December 1945 - after the War had ended. His body was sent home and buried in BOURVILLE-TONNEVILLE Churchyard, Seine-Maritime, France which I think is near Dieppe. I would like some information about the man - Sgt Jacques J B Lemonnier - a photograph of him if possible and a photograph of his grave. Many thanks to anyone who can help.
