    I know this is a very old thread, but I've came back to it and read the story several times now. Truely an amazing thing you did John, and thanks for sharing it with us. Hopefully some of the newer members can read all this and it will probably remind many of the possibility of finding remains whilst out searching for relics.

    Thanks

    Danny

    Superb story and an honourable deed John. I'm glad you were there as witness to the final act in this soldiers life.
    I hadn't read this before so thank you Danny for bringing it back to the surface.
    Best Regards,
    Adrian.

    Dear John Brandon,
    First time I'd found this thread, what an excellent account of what you did.
    You Sir, are a gentleman, and should be very proud of what you have achieved.
    With my very best respects,
    navyman.
