    Hello all. Hope you are well.

    As we are in france and heading up to ypres soon, we wondered if anyone had any relatives or people of interest they wanted us to go and identify/get a photo for you?

    That is a really nice generous offer, my family were lucky, all our WW1 diggers got home. Full points to you for the offer though, it is a lovely gesture!

    Enjoy your experience and if you are passing the Tommy Cafe in Pozieres or the Three Pigeons in Albert say hello to Dominic and Terry for me !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
