Thanks for the link - I've spent a little time earlier on today looking through your site, as I said in my e-mail most impressive! Looking at your "Unusual" section and the two Canadian soldiers (F and T Manning), given their service numbers are one apart I think it's very likely they are related, although the CWGC site doesn't give their ages or any other details. Excellent site!

Magnifique travail sur les cimetières britanniques de notre région.
Petit regret: les 3 cimetières de mon village
Montbrehain ne sont pas inclus dans ce gigantesque travail.

Hi Pierre, I was deeply moved when I visited your site this morning and saw a picture of the stone that marks the grave of my Uncle Dick in Unicorn Cemetery.
He was an uncle I never knew, except from conversations, his brothers had about him. I don't even know if they knew he had a grave in France. All they knew, I think, is that he died a few weeks short of the Armistice. But now, thanks to you and a few others, the memories of these brave young men who sacrificed their lives liberating countries from the Kaiser and Hitler, we can now see where they rest in peace. I can't begin to express my thanks to the people of France and Belgium for their devotion and love they display in the care and attention of maintaining these resting places all these years.
May God Bless you all.

My father, James is survived by his two daughters now living in NZ-Eileen Matthew {Kennedy} Christchurch NZ and Freda Thomsom Matthew, Auckland NZ. we miss hime still--so much and he has missed seeing and knowing his 10 grandchildren and 19 grt grandchildren--so many of them are "lookalikes"-the genes are strong Dadda. Mamie--his wife remarried an NZ soldier, in late 1945 ,on his way back to NZ after his incarceration in Austria and Germany, Mamie died in 1995 in NZ. I would be so happy to hear from any other family members of Dads battalion or friends who remember anything of the battle. Well done to the villagers of Bruyelle who still visit and give homage to the fallen, they are wonderful people who took me in while visiting the cemeteriy and we have forged a close friendship with some of the families there. My address is 21 Norwalk Cres. Peninsula Park Estate, Mangere, Auckland 092754809.

Pierre. What an excellent effort and a wonderful tribute to these young Soldiers who died so far from home.
James MacGregor Smith was an only child born to Fredric and Christina Smith. James enlisted with the Army in Feb 1916, and left New Zealand in July.He had several admissions to hospital in England and France due to sickness and injury. He was promoted to Bombardier in the Sept of 1918, and died in the Oct, just 2 weeks from wars end.
A Death notice for James inserted by his parents cotained this verse.
We pictured his safe return,
And longed to clasp his hand,
But God has postponed this meeting,
T" will be in a better land.

Keep up the good work Pierre, this will become a very popular site.

Regards Albert E Smith

It's a wonderful tribute Pierre. I am astounded by the care and attention lavished on these cemeteries in Belgium and France.
As you know, my Uncle Richard Buckley lies in Unicorn Cemetery at Aisne, France. He was KIA in September 1918 a few short weeks from the Armistice.
My father, Jack, served in France at Ypres. Uncle Frank in France and Gallipoli. Unlce Harold in France in WW1 and WW2. My cousins served in Normandy and Germany during WW2, and my Uncle Ralph never forgot Belgium and its people and visited the country annualy until his passing.
Hopefully, I will visit Belgium and France this year.
I have to make a pilgrimage to Aisne to the grave of the uncle I only knew by name - Dick. he was the youngest of the five brothers all from the tiny village of Madeley in Staffordshire, England.
Someone sent me a beautiful picture of his restig place. It looked as though the stone was only placed there this morning. Such care!
Many thanks for what you are doing.
