My Great Uncle RONALD FRANCIS VAUGHAN service number 14387150 was killed in action 1/7/1944 at the tender age of 19, he served with the Welch Regiment and now rests at St Manvieu war cemetery, for some reason I have no information about but his big was dug up and buried there a little over a year after his death, would anybody know why this would be? He is in plot V11 row B grave 7 and was placed there 12/7/1945, my father visited his uncles grave 4 years ago but could not find any information, sadly he was killed last year so I'm trying to finish what he started, any information or photographs would be hugely appreciated, thanks.

Im writing to remember Company Quarter-Master Sergeant John Treacy of the 5th Bat.Connaught Rangers who was wounded at the battle around Le Cateau on 18th October and died at Maurais France on 20th October 1918. A hundred years ago tomorrow.

Sadly due to ill health I am unable to travel to Maurais Communal Cemetary to pay my respects as had been my intention. He never saw Kilconnell or County Galway again but I imagine in his final hours his thoughts went back to happy times with his wife and infant daughter. May he rest in peace.
on 17/10/2018 at 23:01

Fantastic page and thank you for the information and photographs.

I will be visiting the graves on Saturday of ND-587 405 Squadron to lay a tribute on behalf of W Sinclair's daughter and finding out more information on the crew who he served with has certainly made the visit more poignant.

How lovely to find my relative listed here - when no one knew where he was. I now can fill in details of his life in my paternal family tree for future generations. regards Jenny

Australian Driver 1506Australian Field Artillery25/04/1918 I. D. 14.

I would love a photo of his grave if possible please.

How glad I was to find the photograph of the 5 men who were murdered by S.S. soldiers who invaded the temporary POW camp and murdered the white men only. The camp also had South African coloured and Turks but they weren't touched. One American airman hid with the Turks and escaped and reached England to tell the story of the massacre.
I have put information on the Canadian Virtual War Memorial webpage for P/O Griffin Young. I will give credit for the photo. Thanks so much for your work.

In memory of Emil Bawden Volbrecht of the South African Infantry Brigade who died on the 20/09/1917 during the attack on Borry Farm. Some years ago I purchased a book of the History of the South African Brigade (Buchan) that had been owned by Pvt. Volbrecht's parents - and in which annotationss had been made and flowers pressed. The grief and pride of his Mother Johanna was heartbreaking. I am honoured to have visited Pvt. Volbrechts grave in Perth Cemetry - and to have placed the flowers his Mother had pressed in his memory.

Hello, I am researching Frank Allen Dixon, killed in action 19 July 1916 at Fromelles. His body was never found. In Box Hill Cemetery, Australia, there is a grave of his parents. At the foot of the grave is a simple memorial to Frank's life. There is also a Dead Man Penny. The grave is deteriorating and while Frank's remains do not lie there, only a simple memorial exists, I would like to contact descendants of Henry Creswick and Kate Dixon to have this grave repaired.

Bonjour Pierre,
This is a message of encouragement to you, so that you will keep working on your excellent website about the (too) many war graves.
I am glad that I am able to do a tiny bit of effort in helping your with your website. Keep the work going! Your website is very important.

My Uncle, Reggie Cully, was killed 100 years ago this coming 23rd July, 2018. He is buried in the Sezanne Communal Cemetery in grave A.34. I have been told that he was wounded and being carried by stretcher to the First Aid Post when the party received a direct hit from a shell.
My father, Reggie's older brother, visited his grave with my grandmother many years ago. I have always wanted to visit Sezanne and hopefully I have not left it too late. In the meantime, I would very much like to receive a photograph of Uncle Reggie's grave and any information you may have about his death.
I do so appreciate this site and the wonderful opportunity you offer to the families of those brave souls who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Hello. I am researching my Grandfather Gerald O'Leary who was the tail end charlie in LV 882, The Halifax that came down the night of the2nd - 3rd June 1944.

He parachuted down safely and was driven away by Georges Chateau, a friendly farmer. George reportedly drove Gerald to Raizeux. At some point between landing and the 5th Gerald was killed.

It's not known if he had internal injuries because no injuries were reported by the farmer, if he was shot in a Friendly Fire situation or if there was a fight with the Germans on the ground some time after leaving the site of the crash.

Gerald was buried until after the war in in Chartres having been found dead by in La Taye (more often spelt La Taie) but there are no records of fighting in that area over the period so it is very unlikely he died there. It is likely his body was brought to La Taye from close by because of the danger of being found with a body was ever present so a short journey would have been wise. He was later moved to SAINT-DESIR WAR CEMETERY.

If you had any information on the events or knew of anyone who does or has stories.

Bernard Leroy has been fantastic in providing a huge amount of information on the flight and my Grandfather.

Many thanks, Gerald

My great grandfather John McLinden is buried here D1.7. He was from a small village in Scotland called West Calder. He was killed in the 1st WW at the very start 1914. He had two children John and Mary-Ellen. My father (his grandson John McLinden) and mother visited him a few years back. We also visited in 2015. My husband will be visiting in a few weeks time again. Good to see the cemetery well cared for. We hope to be able to visit in years to come and also for further generations to come back and pay their respects.

I knew almost nothing about the Britter side of my family until I started my research; I have nothing but respect and admiration for my Great-Uncle, Bombr John Joseph Britter (MM) for making the ultimate sacrifice and for being such a role model soldier.

I have no idea if any members of my family since have visited him, but I myself am determined to travel to Dantzig Alley as soon as I am able to.
on 29/05/2018 at 14:14
