Great news Terry - many thanks for your help with Leonard Cramp - my last outstanding case.

Time to submit a couple more!

This news arriving when it did prompted me to think that these chaps will not have had poppies planted in their honour in the Tower of London moat...

Hello Terry,

Apologies for not replying to your Email informing me of the commemoration of Henry Cox, as I changed my Email address last year, and only picked you Email searching through my old account looking for another missed message.

Sorry again
