If anyone is visiting or resident in the Haifa area, is it possible that they could please take a photo for me.

I will PM with details to any response.

Thank you

Peter,

I have to go back to Haifa sometime but it may not be for a month or so; is this urgent?

regards

Michael

Dear Michael, it is not so urgent, so your kindness is much appreciated.

It is just one headstone, shall I PM you with the details ?

Many Thanks

Peter

Michael, BTW and just in case - Chayat Beach cemetary is not the WW1 cemetary in Yafo st., but a section of the large cemetaries at the southern entrance to Haifa, known today as "Kfar Samir" (includes the Jewish, Catholic and Protestant cemetaries used in the present).

Thanks Gal,

Yes, that's the mistake I made on my first visit. It was the gardener at Khayat Beach who told me that I could not miss the War Cemetery in Jaffa Road because of all the palms. Peter and Steve N are looking for WWII chaps, but we'll try to help them anyway :D . I'm hoping that I can hop off and then back on the train with the one ticket, but in any event I think that it's only one station. I'll probably wait a week or two until the rain eases off and the sun comes out again.

Thanks for the thoughtful reminder

Michael
