Dear Pierre - Congratulations on your wonderful website. One of the Scottish casualties laid to rest in Calonne Cemetery is my late mother's brother, John Shand Penman who fell in 1940. Until now, we only knew that he was killed in action in either France or Belgium. It's wonderful to know exactly where he is now. He was born in Bonnyrigg, Midlothian, Scotland and, although he is far from home, he is still remembered with great pride and sorrow that our generation of the family never knew him. Many thanks.

Leonard Alwyne Gray was my Nan's Uncle and is remembered on the Biggleswade War Memorial in the town centre but until now (I'm 35) I did not know much about him. Just that he was there.
It is nice to know where he is buried and my heart goes out to him and his brother William, who died earlier in 1914, and is buried in Le Touret Memorial.

A.J.Cooper was my grandfather's brother. Four brothers in total went to fight for their country, but only my grandfather returned. A tragic loss for one family, you'll agree. My uncle has a photograph of Arthur John and I will send it to you asap. Thank you so much for your dedication to honouring ALL the brave young men who gave their lives in this awful war.

Our journey has been a long one but a very rewarding one. Thanks to all the help from the family, we are finally "doing right" by the men who fell in the name of freedom.

Congratulations Pierre on a wonderful tribute to the brave who fell and are buried or remembered in Belgium and France. I have just completed a spreadsheet of the 10,835 Australian RAAF deaths around the world during WW2. The RAAF contribution during that conflict is not as well known as their AIF brothers from WW1. I am now engaging as many people as I can around the world to take photos of those headstones. My hope eventually is to have a website where those photos would be available free to relatives who are researching their family members who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Members of the RAAF gave their lives willingly in WW2 and are buried in 1066 cemeteries and memorials around the world.

Best regards

The more I look at your website, the more I realise what a wonderful achievement you have done. Being British and someone who is interested in the Battlefields of Europe this is a first class website and I thank you for it.

I have my own battlefield site - would you like me to put a link on mine to yours?

I would like to say a really big thank you to both Pierre Vandervelden and Jean- Michel Dominique for their caring attitude which so many others benifit from.
On behalf of all my family here's a real big thank you to you both (Thank You)

Dear Mr. Vanderveldon,
Thank your for your efforts in honouring the lives of the young men who died in the wars. My great-uncle was Clarence Edward Kinton who is buied in Sin Le Noble, which I visited in 1972. He was born in Huntsville, Ontario on July 7, 1892, the son of Mackie and Mary Kinton and was shot down over Douai. He was originally buried as an unknown airman but his brother T. L. Derwent Kinton (my grandfather), who was serving in the Canadian army, was able to identify him some time later.
My father who was named for him, was killed with the RCAF in the Second War and is buried in Harrogate, England.
Kindest regards,
David Clare Kinton

Thanks for the work here, remembering the past and courage of soldiers.
I know a lot of english people come in France for remebering.
In Aisne, Picardie, the cemetery of Vadancourt ( Vadencourt ) is a place of peace.
If you pass through France, please come in Maissemey.
Here there is a castle where soldiers were captured during war.
Now it is a quiet guesthouse, where you can have a rest. If so, do not hesitate !

Tasman Contencin-Jackson came all the
way from Tasmania, Australia to fight in France and sadly died there three weeks before the armistice. From his many letters we know what the conditions were like and how he missed his family. I hope one day to visit his grave at Prospect Hill. I have photographs of him. It was great to find your website and I'm sure the ancestors of the men who died are thankful for your memorial.

My husband has just left to try and find his Uncle "Bob's" grave at Schorisse. His name was Edward Claude Malyon, known to all as Bob. It is amazing to me that I have found a picture of it here before my husband will have got there. Many, many thanks for this wonderful memorial. I will tell the family and see if we can get a photograph of him.

What an excellent site and what a great tribute to these men you are paying with hard work and dedication.

My great grandfather James Mullan is buried in Le Bizet. I am also trying to get in contact with relatives of the other 3 men he is buried there beside. There is a moving story I have discovered and I would like them all to be remembered.

Hi pierre.
norm from australia hear,thank you for all the attention that you have given us in the last month in our attempt to reserch
my wife`s great uncle George Barnes
without you help reserch would have been a lot slower
And thank you all for the attention that you give the cemeterys they are a credit to you all.
George went to war at the age of 20 years and never returned but it is of great comfort that we know he is being look after and cared for by you great people
All the very best in the rest of you life

Pierre, ton site est remarquable ! Je l'ai dégotté via le GWF (Great War Forum) et je sais à présent vers où me tourner pour des infos les plus complètes possibles.
Bravo et merci pour ton travail de Titan...
Petite question: pourquoi les trois mémoriaux/stèles inhabituels dans le vieux cimetière de Huy (La Sarte) ? Intrigué, je n'ai pu trouver réponse à la question (monuments érigés par le(s) régiment(s) de ces hommes ou peut-être un hommage local à ces soldats ?).
Peux-tu m'éclairer ?
Merci d'avance et encore bravo.
