Sorry for the short notice

 

Kind regards

No photo required  but if you can say hello to Ernest Young plot 4 row B grave 1 I would be very grateful. 

Many thanks

If possible can you photograph the headstone of Richard Cross Wynn who is in LXXII F. 28. It's the north eastern corner. If you have the chance can you photograph the row in relation to the rest of the cemetery? No problem if not in either case. Wynn died in August 1919 while working with the Labour Corps having survived service with the Teeside Pioneers during the war. He was hit on the head by a cricket ball just before he was due to be demobed and died of a brain hemorrhage. He was from Kirkdale in Liverpool but played football for Middlesbrough before the war.

 

Much appreciated.

 

Pete.

As I said in the opening post "Hopefully'. I have just seen that there is a auto rally and other festivities for the next few days.  As this will prevent us from doing some of our intended visits we shall not be going until next week, probably Tuesday (fish market in Etaples).

 

I have noted all those requests so far and open to more.

 

Kind regards

 

John

Hi

Images as requested. Although it was a beautiful sunny day, morning is not the best time at Etaples for photographs. The front of the headstones were in deep shade, hopefully these are acceptable.

 

Andy, Knox is not in plot XXII, rather it is XII.  ............ Tut Tut!

 

Michelle, I know you said not, but photo included.

 

Kind regards

 

John
