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. Our family members have visited his grave several times over the years and have always been greeted with kindness and respect by the local people. Lest we forget.

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

My annual visit to my Mother's Uncle Edgar's grave. Private Edgar Moore 39781 Duke of Wellington's Regiment. Killed in Action on the Reutel Ridge, Ypres 16 March 1918. The youngest of 4 brothers who all served in the same Regiment. He had only been in France and Belgium for 3 weeks at the time of his death! He is buried in Aeroplane Cemetery Ypres in Belgium not far from where he was actually killed. Such a dreadful waste of all that generation of men of all sides who gave up their lives! Why???? And have we learned any lessons????

In Memory of my maternal grandfather Herbert Covill who was killed in action on 8th October 1918 near Seranvillers North France in the 2nd Battle of Cambrai. He is buried in the Forenville Military Cemetery.

He had been in the war since early 1915, wounded at The Somme and went out to France 4 times in all. He had only returned to France 3 weeks before being killed. My mother was born 7 months after his death and my lovely Gran was a widow for 64 years.

We always say a Father and Grandfather never known - never forgotten.

On 27 July 2016, my wife Lorraine and I visited Heestert Military Cemetery West Vlaanderen Belgium

To pay our respects to my uncle Harry Nansen Harris

We may even be his first family members to visit

His middle name Nansen was given after Fridtjof Nansen the famous Norwegian Explorer whom Harry's father Charles had met in Whitworth Park Manchester, Nansen having fallen off his horse whilst intoxicated, Charles helped him back onto his horse, being most grateful the intrepid explorer went on his way saying "name your next child after me!", hence the origin of the middle name.

After Harry's death on 22 Oct 1918 the family unaware he had been killed had celebrated the armistice of 11 Nov 1918, my grandmother was not informed of his death until 26 February 1919 when she was informed of his death and paid £6 17s 4d in back-pay.

Latter on 12 December 1919 she received a War Office death benefit of £15 10s 0d approximately €20 not much for a life full of promise, cut short so cruelly, most probably by a machine gun bullet.

He lies here now, forever at peace. R.I.P

He was posthumously awarded the British War Medal and the Allied Victory Medal (Mutt & Jeff)

When I told my mum (who had worn his locket all her life), I had found the location of the grave of her brother she was so pleased but being in her 90's she did not wish to visit, she was just pleased that he had a known grave, as so few had in this conflict.

Coming here I have fulfilled my mother’s wish to pay her last respects to her much loved brother.

And placed a small memorial cross of remembrance by his grave.

Thank you to all those who have established and tended to this graveyard and to the kindness and respectfulness of the Belgium people

I have with the kind help of Pierre Vandervelden posted a picture of Harry on the cemetery website

The gravestone of Cpl G Sutton, Royal Signals is of particular interest to me. Graham and I served together at the Allied Signal Centre (ASC) in Margival in the early 60s. Graham was one of the few people in the camp who could afford a car - he and I had been for a day out in Rheims, in March 1964, returning to attend the afternoon meal back in camp. One of the other soldiers was holding a leaving party on camp and I had arranged to attend. Graham decided to go out again that evening. Sadly, he crashed his car and was killed. He was one of several soldiers from the camp who were killed in car crashes between 1963 and 1966. I left the camp for Germany just before France withdrew from NATO and the unit was moved to The Netherlands.
