Apart from jonbem, does no one want any photos? Will be hopefully be visiting Etaples, Boulogne Estern and possibly Wimereux too. Will be visiting as many of the small churchyards and communal cemeteries along the Aisne Valley.

If you are visiting Wimereux could you take a photo of the headstone of 2796 Pte Ernest Alfred Clarke, 39th Btn. AIF who is buried in VI. G. 18.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi Michelle,

If possible, I would appreciate a headstone photo of 9476 Pte Sidney James Edwards, 2nd Bn Royal Berkshire Regiment at Boulogne Eastern Cemetery, ref III. D. 7.

Thank you,

Any more? Either Lapugnoy or Chocques added to the list.

I'd love to see a selection of the photos you take while you are over there; maybe one from Vendresse looking up the valley towards the old front line? Hope the weather holds for you, have a great time.

Pete.
