I am writing in memory of my great uncle Gunner Charles Davis of the Royal Garrison Artillery. He died aged 20 on 3/7/16 and is buried in Vlamertinghe Cemetery. My father was named after him and he was often spoken of as at the time of his death he was the tallest man in the British army during the 1st world war. Great uncle you are often in my thoughts, and I'm so sorry that your young life was cut so short. I will not forget you.

Thank you for keeping the names of the war dead at Terlincthun alive. Little is heard about this cemetery. My uncle, Michael Patrick Devlin, 2nd battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers is buried there. Died as a P.O.W. on 4th December 1918 which I find so poignant. He might have made it home. What happened to him, what he died from - wounds, disease, I don't know!!! He must have been on the Western Front. If anybody knows anything I'd like to know.
 
on 02/08/2014 at 07:36

I was born in 1933 so I never knew Charles but in May's later years I looked after her and she often talked about him and how he had been killed on the Somme. As it is the 100th Anniversary of the start of the First World War tomorrow I would just like to say that he is not forgotten.

As the song goes 'when will we ever learn'.

My husband and I plus our two boys visited the grave of Reginald A.Tillcock (died 28.6.17.) last weekend at Belgian Battery Corner - He was my Gt. Uncle. We left a poppy/cross -nothing could prepare us for the overwhelming feeling of being in a place where he and his comrades were buried. We also visited the Flanders Museum and the Menin Gate.
You are still remembered dear Reginald.

My father, Douglas Harrington, has been researching the death of his cousin whose aircraft was shot down over France and he is buried in Noyers-le-Val Cemetery - John Alan Richards. On your website is a photograph that my father would dearly like to have a print of - the gravesite of his cousin and his aircrew. Can that be arranged, please?

I visited my great uncles war grave in 1980 Lance corporal James Acton at Chercq Belgium but I have only read today the action that lead to his passing in 1940. As an ex serviceman myself I cannot comprehend the bravery of these men in this rear guard action to Dunkirk. Obviously I never knew him but I am now so proud to share his surname RIP James.

Pte 52372 H Binns, Kingsman of Liverpool was my maternal Great Grand-Father. My late Grandmother's only memory of her father was when she, along with her elder brother John and my Great Grandmother Mary, waved him off from Liverpool Lime St Station. She never knew where nor how he had fallen.
To "celebrate" my Grandmother's 75th birthday, we were able to locate his resting place via the Wargraves Commission and myself, my Mother and step-father took her to finally see her Dad's final resting place. It was the first time she had even left British shores.
We are now just one of millions of families who are custodians of memories so powerful and so all-consuming, having traced and visited long lost loved ones in this way.
To say it was over-whelming, to watch from a discreet distance as my 'Nan' produced a poppy from her pocket to place against his headstone, while talking softly and longingly to her Dad after all those years, is to hugely understate things.
Sadly, Nan had lost her elder brother in the 1970's, but I like to think that he looked upon us that day with the same mixture of sadness and pride that we shared.
My work has allowed me to visit the grave several times since, while driving around the French / Belgian border anf that the cemetary is so impeccably maintained is a testament to the gratitude still felt by local people.
I still do not know the circumstances of my Great Grand-Father's death. That he is remembered by a marked grave reassures me that, whatever the circumstances, he was recovered from the field of battle and buried with his comrades with the respect and dignity due to them all.
If anybody is able to provide any anecdotal or recorded history of the action seen around Bertrancourt in the Novemeber of 1916, I and my family would be eternally grateeful.
PAX
