Hi, Gunner FC Rust was my Grandads brother. I've known about Frederick all my life, but unfortunately my grandad passed away when I was one year old so never got to have any stories passed on to me. I have however got Fredericks medals and will be visiting his resting place one day with them hopefully. Unable to do so at the moment due to ill health.
Thank you for this site 😃

We are interested in information regarding a relative of my wife Pvt. Francis Alfred Shortland 27578 7th (Service) Battalion Northamptonshire Regiment killed in action 21.11.17 and commemorated by grave V1.J.76. Would like to know which action resulted in his death and if it might be possible to obtain somehow a photo of his headstone as we are most unlikely to ever be able to get there ourselves Thank you for your excellent work.

Many Thanks for the photo of the resting place of my great uncle Frank King in Zuytpeene, France.
The sad story that my mother told me of his wife and son has been made more poignant and real.
Seeing the photo has moved me more than I could have foreseen and I have decided that I should visit to pay my respects.
Best wishes,
Karen

Lance Corporal Ernest William Buckfield, Royal Engineers, serving with Inland Water Transport. Died 20th March 1919 on his way back home from Mesopotamia. He was taken off the boat in La Havre and died of malaria. He left a wife and four year old daughter in Sutton Surrey.
Sorry not to have a photograph of him. I seem to remember my grandmother had a picture of him on her wall taken while he was in hospital in La Havre with a feeding cup by his bedside. Sadly that photograph has disappeared. Would dearly love to see it again.
My family visited his grave a few years ago. We felt so moved and yet relieved to know he was buried in such a beautiful well kept place.
Thank you.

I am eternally grateful to Isabelle and Guillaume for taking me to my Uncle's grave in Breux-Juoy. After 70 years I am the first family member from Australia to visit his grave. A very emotional visit but extremely rewarding all thanks to these two amazing and dedicated people. With heartfelt thanks. The web site is absoliutely brilliant. There are no enough words to say "thank you Isabelle & Guillaume."

my uncle William Francis Walton was buried at Namps Au Val after passing away from wounds received at Villers Brettoneux on April 13th 1918. He was the editor of the Emmaville Argus newspaper and also ran the "Cooee" newspaper on the troop ship "Suevic" during his November 1916 voyage to Britain. I had the honour of visiting his grave in 2005 and shall never forget the experience.

Your Family salute you. Gone but not Forgotten.

I lead a group to the Battlefields in July 2014. We led a wreath to a relative buried at Pouchvilliers Cemetery. We were all deeply moved when we discovered in the Registry Box a photo of a soldier buried there and a letter dated May 2013 from his family telling him of his family history. The letter tells that his sister was 102 and still alive and had 10 children. I regret not taking full details of the soldier and letter. Can anyone assist as i refer to them when i do talks on behalf of the Somme Museum Northern Ireland They underline the continuing emotional impact of WW1
