I have been in contact with Simon Somerville, who has a web site for 75 NZ Squad RAF. I have gained a lot of information from him regarding one of your photos - specifically the crew of the Lancater Bomber ND190.
The full line-up from L to R is :-
Sgt M.F.Morgan : Sgt F.C.McIntyre : F/S B. Milne : F/S B.W.Bateson : Sgt C.H.Slater : Sgt G.L.Startin. : Sgt E.L.Connett. (copyright Archie McItyre.)
Full details of each member are detailed in your write-up.
Colin Harry Slater was my father's paternal first cousin (my1st cousin once removed!!). Colin died when I was 2 months old.
My paternal cousin and I are the genealogist of the Slater Family and intend to visit the site of the Battle of Loos (for its 100th Anniversary) where our paternal Grandfather received a bullet wound to his right temple - he survived. We also intend to visit the Graves at Fruges.
Its only since reading Simon's site that I became aware of your web site.
I thank you on behalf of the Slater family for the photo of Colin's grave.

You and your team are carrying out such an honorable and generous task on behalf of those brave men (and their families) involved all wars.

Thank you for maintaining this website.

Two relatives of mine with links to Thurlaston, Leicestershire, were killed on the same day and just a few miles apart. I don't know if they knew each other personally.

Pte James Thomas Thompson of Coventry was killed 29th September 1918 whilst serving as a gunner in 8th Battalion, Tank Corps in the assault on the Hindenburg Line at Bellicourt. He is commemorated on the Vis-en-Artois memorial.

Second Lt. George Ernest Woodward of Thurlaston, Leicestershire, was killed on this day whilst taking part in a diversionary attack a handful of miles away near Epehy. He was in the Worcestershire Regiment.

Had James lived, he would have married his cousin and become my great uncle. All I have is a fine box which he made and inscribed to my great aunt in 1916. She subsequently never married.

My great uncle is buried at Templeux-Le-Guerard. He was Lance Corporal Joseph Warner, D/4343, 6th Dragoons (Inniskilling) who died on 7th July 1917 aged just 25 yrs. I don't think my grandmother (Joseph's younger sister) was ever able to visit his grave. My brother, my cousin and myself are going to visit his grave in September this year on our grandmothers behalf. I have a lovely picture of Joseph in his uniform and would love to laminate one and put it on his gravestone. I am very proud of my great uncle even though I never met him.

Do you know if there are any "unknown soldiers" buried in the Orchard Dump Cemetery. My great uncle was killed and missing in action at Arleaux on 28 Apr 1917. I noticed that many members of the Western Canadian Regiments who fought at Arleaux and were killed on 28 April 1917 were buried in this cemetery. He was at first with the Saskatchewan Regiment and then combined with the Alberta Regiment.

Remembering with pride my great uncle, Richard Albert Cleaver who was killed on 19 July 1916, aged 22 and is buried at Laventie Military Cemetary. Also his younger brother, Albert who was killed a few months before the end of the war on 29th June 1918, aged just 18. Albert is buried just a few miles away from his brother at Thiennes. Their brother William (my grandfather, survived) and died in 1978. His son, my father, Sidney Cleaver is alive and well at 91 - he served in WW2 flying Spitfires for 607 Squadron in Burma against the Japanese. I hope the sacrifices that all the young men featured on your site made are never forgotten - we owe them a debt that can never be repaid.

I am the nephew of Edward Bernard Holden Corbett Private 34th Battalion Australian Army killed in Belgium 17th May 1917 19 yrs old, buried Tancrez Farm Cemetery, Wallonie Belgium. I think it is sad that this cemetery is never mentioned in any ceremonies that Australia holds in regards to our soldiers even on the 100 year anniversary 25th April 2015, I know not many Australians are buried there but they fought in a war for Australia and they need to be recognised for their heroic feats, Lest We Forget, I was named after my uncle he preferred to be called Bernard as my father his brother was a young lad when war was declared he missed his brother so when I was born he called me Bernard a name I am very proud of, my uncle will never be forgotten as my children and now my grand children have a photo of him and know where he is buried. if anyone has any information on my uncle please email me on lnbcorbett( at sign)optusnet.com.au. Rest In Peace Dear Uncle. Always Remembered. Bernard Corbett

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 .

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?
