Hi Steve

Glad I saw this. If you email me I can take care of the Bedfords, as previously discussed. Unfortunately, I lost my utlook (hence addresses, emails etc) when my PC died on me & I couldnt find a record of what we had previously discussed!

Speak to you soon

Hello forum

I am re writing my Book Orchards to Poppyfields, about the soldiers from Colne in Huntingdonshire, if any member has any details on any of the men I would be grateful.
