Dear Sue,
Some Lendelede (Belgium) locals are thinking about doing something special in the context of November 11th commemoration this year (2020). Would you by any chance have more information concerning the circumstances of your grandfather's KIA, any pictures or documents in order to honour John Cowie? Please contact me via jo.vanderbeke( at sign)proximus.be
Thank you in advance.

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.

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

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.

Visited the grave of my great uncle Frederick R Rookyard at Hébuterne Military Cemetery today (30-05-2019 at 10.45). I was in company with my daughter Rebecca (great great niece). I remember when I was a young choirboy I first noticed the name on a church plaque (All Saints Wetheringsett) and wondered if he (Fred) was related. I did ask but not much was said in the 1950s or perhaps thought not suitable for young ears. I have made enquiries over the years but didn’t seem to get anywhere until last year on a website (Flickr) tracked him down. So on the way back from holiday in France today took a detour, I thanked him for his courage and life so we could have a future and the Rookyard’s still remember. Raymond Rookyard (formally of the street Brockford the same house as Fred was raised)

My Great-Uncle, James Albert AHERN is interred at Pernois Cemetery. On the 100th Anniversary of his passing, 27th April 2018, I visited his War Grave. This was a long-time dream and also honoured a promise to my Mother (niece of James Ahern) that I would visit his grave. Being at his grave, being the only relative to have ever visited from Australia, was a very special moment in my life. Lest We Forget

Hello,

My name is Donna Cox and my husband’s name is Howard Cox. We live in Campbellville, Ontario, Canada and we are writing to you in the hopes of helping us to find someone in charge of the Seraincourt Church. My husband’s Uncle, Gordon Kenneth Young, formerly from Stratford, Ontario, Canada, a RCAF Warrant Officer is buried in the Seraincourt Churchyard with his crew who were shot down in their Wellington Airplane in World War II. In fact, the whole crew of the plane, all eight crew members, are buried in this Churchyard.

We are planning to visit France for the first time on March 24 to 25 and are thinking of coming to visit his grave. Gordon Kenneth Young’s sister, Doris Marilyn (Young) Cox is still alive and will be 90 next week and we would love to be able to visit the Church and to bring her pictures back of her brother’s grave.


If you can either help me with this request or give me the email or telephone number of the person in charge of the Church so that I can arrange with him/her to be able to access the grave, I would be very grateful.

Thank you very much.

Donna Cox and Howard Cox
Nephew to Gordon Kenneth Young

Hi Darryl,

I saw on the site of inmemories.com, that you were looking for a photo of your Gt Uncle' gravestone -
In case you have not managed to find one, I have found a photo of your Gt. Uncle's Grave - if you would like me to send it to you, let me know or check it out on the site below:-

I FOUND THIS PHOTO ON THE WAR GRAVES PHOTOGRAPHIC SITE

If you want to contact them, they are very helpful and would be able to send you a clearer photo so that you should be able to read what is written on the headstone.

Regards,
Joan Powell (nee Chessman)

Hi. My Great Uncle George Thomas Kirk is buried in Quievy. My Brother and I are researching him and have found out a bit about him. He was my Nan's eldest Brother and she never really spoke about him although when she died, we found his pictures, penny, letters from the home office etc. We went over to Quievy in October on the 100th anniversary of his death and are planning to visit again in 2019. I can send a picture of him. Thanks
