Gunner Gilbert Hardy Midgley - new headstone

We're thrilled to see that our Jan 2018 submission of 72696 Gunner Gilbert Hardy Midgley's case has borne fruit with a new headstone on his Utley Cemetery grave at Keighley. Wonderful news from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and a lovely early Christmas present!

Gilbert's story is here: https://tinyurl.com/yc86jfxr

Thank you Chris.

Three men commemorated and one not accepted, It's a small thing compared to what the IFCP have achieved but it's great to know we're making a difference.

Small or large numbers, each one makes a huge difference in many ways. Beautiful to see that Gunner Midgley now has his identity back.

Rest in Peace
