    Hi Dan, fantastic notes. I'm with you, I wish I had a name with all my pieces, but I don't. Do you know if he survived the war?

    That would sound as if he was stationed in the Channel Islands or post-war POW booklet? do you know more about where he was stationed? very nice set indeed.

    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
