My great grandad is buried at Montcornet Military Cemetry - Thomas Old. He was killed in action 25th September 1914, Cameron Highlanders regiment. He was only 33 years old and my grandad was just a baby when they received the news. My grandad made it his mission to find out where he was buried and twenty odd years later his name was put on the grave. Sadly my great granny died before she ever found out where her husband was buried. Please can you email me a picture of his grave. Myself and my mum would love to come to the cemetry and visit his grave as no one has been there since he died but we are unsure how to get there. We live in Scotland but one day I am sure we will visit. My grandad has passed away now too, but my mum still has a collection of letters that my great grandad wrote to his wife while he was waiting to go out to battle. Thank you

Thank you for your excellent homepage.

I have in centuries and years taken an interest in WW1, and especial for the battlefield, warfare and the inhuman sacrifices of lives at the Vest Front.
I have, over years, visit almost every front line from Verdun to Ostende, and naturally also an unbelievable great part of the Memorial Cemetery.

On a visit at Passendale Memorial in the summer 1987, with my wife, we had attention on a gravestone, at the Memorial entrance first row.
That was going straight to our hearts.

AGE 19


I have through the years, at several time, visit Passendale Memorial Cemetery.
I can´t let him out of memory, though he is "just" one of many soldiers on the field.

This homepage description is military, but is it possible to find more information of his private life ?.
It would please me to get knowledge to it.

When my wife, at 2007, died, I have with Danish words, let graving on our gravestone, the words from Harold Paynes gravestone.

I promise myself, and my wife, to visit Passendale Memorial this year : 2017, 2 November, 12:00 o´clock, in memory of the 100 years-day of Harold Paynes death.

It might be the last time in my life.

How peculiar that a soldiers destiny, can have such an influence, on to him, unknown human.

It was only occasional, 30 years ago, we attention his gravestone.
If it was occasional.
Only God, and maybe Harold Payne, knows.

Excuses for my incorrect English.

He died of his wounds on Nov 3rd 1917 aged 20 , his parent's only son he was a rifleman in The 18th London Regiment (Irish Rifles). I have just started to look into my family history and have very little information other than this if anyone can offer any additional details I'd be most grateful.

Message to MIKE B regarding Pvt Francis Shortland from Northamptonshire, died in Flanders in 1917: this gentleman was my first cousin three times removed, and I am currently conducting research into this branch of my family. Are you looking for details of his family, or are you just interested in the military action which led to his death?
I'd be happy to share my family information with you, if it would help.
Kind regards

Thank you for keeping this site. My grandfather was the first Canadian killed on active duty in France in WWII - Sgt Donald G Hutt. My mother and aunt were very young when he was killed.

In September 2001 I, together with my wife and adult daughters, visited the WWI cemetery in Awoingt to honour my cousin Richard Atkinson of the Shropshire Light Infantry and who died from his wounds on the last day of the War, aged 19. We placed flowers on his grave and each said a silent prayer for him. Each year on the anniversary of his death and the end of the Great War we remember him and his parents, who lost their only surviving child on his death.

Good afternoon.
May I ask you a question; I am writing a book about the bombing of our village Roden, in the north of the Netherlands. It was on october 24 1941.
Aircraft; Wellington W5704. Crew; Gray, Austin, Whitton, Tomlinson, Gill and Cox. Till now I have three menbers located.; Gray, Austin and Whitton. I hope that Samuel Cox, 869313 and Adrian Harold Cooper Gill, nr. 404024, who were in the 214 sqdn. have served in the 57 on Feltwell.
In the reports of the RAF I cannot find the names of Cox and Gill after october 1941. Did they go to the 214?? I also cannot find Tomlinson. Could anybody please help me? I would be very grateful for that. Yours sincerely. Tjerk Karsijns, Roden Netherlands. If you google my name or bom Roden you can find a lot. I jyly this year a not exploded bomb was found in our village.

Remembering Cecil Beven Mellenfield, 2nd Lt, South Lancs Regiment, who died 23rd October 1916 and whose grave I visited in Mill Road Cemetery in September 2015. He was 33 and was a solicitor in London. His cousin, Thomas Beven, also a 2nd Ltd with the South Lancs, had died on 3rd July 1916.

With deep thanks to Cecil, Thomas and all the men who died and who suffered lasting damage doing their duty for the sake of ultimately restoring freedom.

With thanks for this site for caring and remembering the remembered and unremembered men
