Marvellous news, what a list! Well done to all concerned.

Just as a matter of interest, when were they submitted for consideration?

Just interested as Chris Harley has submitted one for me and I think he said it could take up to three years? Herbert Moore was his name. Discharged with Nephritis and died of the same (on his DC) around a year after discharge.

Rest in peace soldier boys, gone and never forgotten. poppy.gif

Andy, the Australians were submitted in mid to late 2009 when I cross-referenced the Australian War Memorial with the CWGC Debt of Honour. It's so humbling that after a two year wait these heroes have been flooding in from the cold over the past six weeks. To the team, I can't thank you enough.

I have read the service records again of John Mullins. There has been a thread on the forum that he would fit into well, very sad.
