Hi, I am trying to contact Ross Izatt (Australia) who left a message (3 may 2014) about his grandfather, Richard Izatt (†Orcq 23 10 1918). I am involved in a project to commemorate the British soldiers who died in Orcq (Belgium) during WW1 between 21st and 28th October 1918, and try to find more information about Richard. If you are able to forward him this email, I would be very grateful.
Thank you. bernard.demaire( at sign)skynet.be

One Hundred years on from WW1 our thoughts return to remember those who fought in WW1 that we may live. With the approach of ANZAC Day it is inevitable that thoughts of all the Wars return to minds, and we honour those who fought and survived, along with those who fell and died. Those we loved, along with those we never knew, for whom our loved ones mourned and cried. In Memory of them All.
May all Soldiers who carried our lives in their hands, carry the grace of God in their Hearts for all time.
Rest in Peace Private William John Rau, 25/809 b New Zealand 1891 d in France 1917 , Conde Sur L`Scout Community Cemetery .

AS we approach ANZAC DAY, 25/4/2015 I write in memory of my great, great uncle Kenneth Grigor Williamson from Otago province, New Zealand who was killed in action during WW1 aged 21. He is buried in Grevillers British Cemetery, map reference on the 1920 record is given as "57c. H. 25. a. 2. 2" & the Plot, Row & Grave are given as "Plot 11 A.A.21."
If anybody is able to photograph Kenneth's grave I would be grateful for a copy of the image since after an illness I am unlikely to travel away from NZ again. MY email is bethk( at sign)snap.net.nz and I can be found on facebook. I have messaged Pierre separately for his help too. Thank you in advance :)

Mu uncle David Gow Bethune (born Dunbeath, Caithness, Scotland 15.6.1890) died in France while serving with 1st Central Ontario Regiment on 9.12.1916. He had lived at 339 Dufferin Street, Toronto with Mrs J Garden before leaving for WW1 service in France. He was employed in the yards of James T Gilchrist Lumber Co Ltd at 496 Gladstone Avenue. Does anyone know of his life in Toronto - I have a picture of Dave with a girlfriend and he had a tattoo on his arm which contained the name "Lizzie". I have often wondered who was Lizzie?

i was very plsd , to find a photo of my Grandfather ,[ which must have been taken just before he left the uk in 1915 ] ., to go to BELGIUM with his regiment . His name was ERNEST BALL ., and he was killed near to the village of PLOEGSTEERT . It was very emotional for me to see him as he looked with sad eyes , before he set off on this ONE WAY TRIP. I have been to the Memorial in Belgium and have signed the Visitors Book , it is a Peaceful place nowadays & so well kept by the Graves Commission , and it is a reminder to us all , of a LOST GENERATION . :-(

When I was very young our family would visit my grandparents on Long Island. There on a wall was a photograph of a young man in uniform. Haunting in a way. Later in my life I learned more about this person, he being my great uncle, who died so very close to home and so near to the end of that war.

Thank you for keeping the memory of these brave men and women alive. My great uncle Private Robert George age 22 of the Seaforth Highlanders died on the 11th April 1917 at Roeux, Arras, France, and is buried in Browns Copse. All 12 Officers, and nearly 400 men (92%) of his battalion were wiped out by machine gun fire. My Grandmother never got over the loss of her dear brother and sadly never got the chance to visit his grave. My partner and I made the journey on her behalf on armistice day 2013 placing our poppies on his grave. It was a very moving and emotional day. I have photographs of him and his grave (beautifully kept) and also of the Seaforth Memorial. All of this I will pass on to my son so that Robert George will never be forgotten.

Hello, my father was named in honour of his relative killed in action in WW1. John George BAYLIFF. While we have always been aware of this relative we have only recently come across your photos Pierre in the Vaire-Sous-Corbie cememtery. I am particularly interested in why he and 3 others are in a civilian cemetery. I am intrigued as to the story behind this and what part the locals played in their burial. As I am coming to France in November I am particularly interested in visiting this grave. Any information anyone can give our family would sincerely be appreciated. Thank you. Kind regards, Janet.
