do you want photos from Ste Marie Cemetery, Le Havre?

Recommended Posts

I have got a very reliable contact who actually lives overlooking Ste Marie Cemetery who is very happy to take any photos that you may want.

Please add your wants on this thread and I will pass them onto him.

In his words, 'I'm really proud to this job for British people! This is a pleasure.'

I have spoken to my contact and he is very pushed for time as he works very long hours and does have a social life too.

He has agreed that if I supply him with all the individual names from EACH Division, in turn, he will get the photos for me to send on to you. He may only be able to do one Division per week depending on numbers, but he has promised that EVERY single photo that is wanted by each of you, he WILL take. But it may take a few weeks.

I have copied each list of wants and will cross them off as I receive them. Please let me know if you want me to send you them as and when i get them, or you would rather me wait until I have all of your list before sending.

My contact has either been working or on holiday for the last few weekends, but he has promised me that he shall resume this coming weekend.
