 You are on the list.

Trust you to spot the deliberate error! Actually it was my husband's bad writing I was looking at. Still can't grumble at him this week as it is our 50th Wedding Anniversary on Friday!

Lady Linda,

 

this is a most kind offer.  If you were to manage to get a photo of the following I'd be most grateful:

 

Pozières:  Bdr David Andrew (RFA, service number 6993), grave IV.C.8

 

Very many thanks - and I hope your stint at the museum went well,

 

David.

Hi Linda,

 

Would be great if you could photo this one...although you seem to have more than enough so far.

 

L173/292142 Gnr. John W Broadhurst Killed in Action 22/07/1916.
Buried at DANTZIG ALLEY British Cemetery, MAMETZ. Plot III.D.7.

 

Perhaps you could also look in on my Great Grandfather;

8101 Gunner S T Bungey died 12/04/1917.
Husband of Ada A. Bungey, of 141, Romsey Rd., Shirley, Southampton.
Buried at CHAPPELLE BRITISH CEMETERY, HOLNON. Plot II.F.10.

 

I'll understand if you just have too many to do.

 

Many thanks

 

Alan.

No problem, you are the list. We are used to taking lots, as we have about 160  to photograph at Thiepval!  As he is a relative of yours do you want us to leave a little wooden cross on his grave?

That would be fabulous Linda.

Just let me know where I can leave a donation.

Alan.
