Hello Bob - I have identified another chap on one of my local memorials thanks to the parish magazine - L/Cpl Harry Lawes 2097 1/4 Hants. According to the CWGC he is on the Basra Memorial panel 21 & 63 (evidently a split personaility).  If you have his name on one of your photos I'd be very grateful for a copy.

Hello Bob,

 

I wonder if you can help me. My great uncle Sgt. William George Foreman 1894-1916 is on Panel 10 of the Basra Memorial and I would very much like to have a picture for our remembrance service we are having on the11th of November which will mark the 100 year commemoration of the end of the war. 

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance

 

Regards,

 

Robert Dennis Foreman

He is in the Amara War Cemetery according to CWGC, so I don't think he would be on the Basra Memorial as well, would he?
