    A great story! I have been to Overloon several times and I must have seen his former grave.

    The process which led to his being identified must have been very complex to be based on his dental records alone - makes you wonder how many "missing men" might have in "the frame" as potential "names" to begin with and how each would have to have been "eliminated" from the search process.

    Having seen the care which the Dutch take of our war graves , in making them theirs these poor lads are in good hands.
