hi sarah,
i have just recently found out that my uncle is buried here.his name is D.C.Rhodes and i wondered if you had the photo of his grave.
i would be really grateful if you could forward this to me.
i have tried to send you a personal e mail with no luck,i could not find it in the profile part.
i am new to this so probably missing something silly.
i also think it is wonderfull that you have spent so much of your spare time doing this for people.

Hi Rhodesy,
Hopefully you should have received the three photo's on your e-mail.  If there is a problem please don't hesitate to contact me.  Like I said before, I will try to get to the cemetery again later today and get you some more.
Cheers

hi sarah,
photo's received ok.

not sure why there are two names on the stone,i suspect it is because,as far as i know,he was missing in action so no bodies were found.
just a guess,if anyone else would know the answer please don't hesitate to let me know.

once again thanks sarah,they are great.

regards
iain

Hi Iain,

Have you seen the 5th message on this thread from Kyt?  He gives details of the location that the plane was shot down.  He mentions that the bodies may be buried there.  I don't know whether he knows any more.  Failing that I could always take a trip to Chièvres Maison Communale to see if they know anything.

hi sarah,

thanks for the offer,it is very kind of you but not too worry.
my mum has found a site that says all the crew were identified.
maybe two in the grave is a space saving thing,are any of the other graves doubled up like this one?

regards
