Hello all,

I've been prompted by a couple of GWF members to post all of my photo requirements on one thread, in the hope that some kind souls will come to my aid. I am currently seeking photos of graves/inscriptions from the following cemeteries/memorials in France. The list is rather lengthy, but I would sincerely appreciate any offers of assistance with this daunting task.

Thanks in anticipation, Luke.

Hi Luke,

We were at Bellicourt Cemetary in June this year. We took several beautiful photos of the cemetary as well as specific ones of our grandfather's grave James Shacklady. We may have included one or two others if that helps. Let me know where to forward our photos to.

Glad to be of service.

Regards

Wendy

Hi all,

Haven't been on the Forum for a while and have just arrived here to find some very kind offers - some of which I have now unfortunately missed due to my absence.

Thanks firstly to Peter B for the kind offers and I'm sorry I didn't see them sooner!

Wendy, thanks to you also for the offer. I will PM you with the details of my Bellicourt casualty just in case and I'd appreciate any general shots of the cemetery.

And also...

I do not seem to have received your PM re the Pozieres photos you require.

I will be going on Monday and it will be the last time I can go over this year so will need the details before Sunday evening

If you still need these, I have a contact who lives overlooking Ste Marie Cemetery, Le Havre if you can give me any names you have there he will get the photos.

I also have all the panel photos from La Ferte sous Jouarre Memorial if you want to add those too.

Thanks to the phenomenal and much-appreciated efforts of magscotabroad, I've been able to make a huge update to the above list.

I've also just picked up (albiet rather late!) the kind offers from temptage (a PM heading your way, temptage!).

If anyone else can help finish off this list, I'd be most grateful. Nearing the end now...
