If you PM me your email address I should have photos somwhere of the grave of Nelson Caldwell as he was one I visited during a trip around 170 cemeteries in the Salient last May. We were at Elzenwalle on the 92nd anniversary of his death. We hadn't been able to find out any info on him so if you have a bit of background info it would be nice to see it.

Many thanks.

Good morning Seasider. 129118 Gunner E HAWCUTT , MILTON-UNDER-WYCHWOOD (SS. SIMON AND JUDE) CHURCHYARD if, by the the 31st March, you have not had a response to this soldier, send me a PM and I will do my best to get it for you. I am travelling down south in early April and will not take too much of a detour to get to the village. If you have specific location etc. it would help me locate. Regards John

John,

An email to the CWGC should help you, they have maps of churchyards etc and you should be able to get the one for there

Bob - I'd previously told you we'd be able to get a picture of Ernest Hesketh Harrison's grave at Peronne - I don't think we're going to be getting as far down as Peronne on this trip.

Sorry about that - will be there in the Summer though, in case no-one is able to help before then...

I have been researching my village war memorial and am missing details for a Ernest H Harrison. I thought he could be Ernest Hesketh Harrison but I see you have him listed on yours. Do you have any more details? If it turns out that I have the wrong one I will let you have all the research I have done on his family.

Regards

Simon
