Please note the Hyperlinks provided below (will open in a new window) will take the visitor to:
1. the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) web site
2. the FindaGrave Memorial web site
(with the exceptions of: the Boer War link – which is the roll-of-honour web site, and also the Bomber Command Website)

These links are only a signpost to the CWGC and FindaGrave websites and are not intended to replace their webpages or information. Please visit their links and help keep our heroes memories alive.

All photos have been taken by us apart from those accredited to which we thank them and which will be replaced by our own photos where and when possible. So far we have found 32 photos of the personnel, out of the 103.

Can you help? We are searching for photographs of the soldiers listed on this page and are trying to trace any currently living family relatives. If you are or know of a relative, please would you contact us, we would love to talk with you.

I (Chris Wareham) am related to 17 of these heroes and am working on links to the others.

Thank you.
