Not sure where to post this, if better elsewhere please advise!


I am visiting 2 locations in particular over 11th/12th/13th August. 10th & 14th are travel days. I will have my car and my 15 year old son will be travelling with me. I would like to include something like a tour or additional sites to visit that are specific to the times and unit below. I have 2 days for this visit and 1 day for near Ypres (will post details seperately).


Jean Auguste Le Lievre (Number R/1569) died 2nd April 1918 as a POW in a German field hospital and is buried in Favreuil British Cemetary - he served as Able Seaman in Hawke Division Royal Naval Reserve. This is on his record:
