Hi Sketch,
will you be at the Buckley Society meeting on Friday - an appeal there may bring results?

I did post a photo on the website at the weekend of the grave in Citadel New Military Cemetery Fricourt of J. Brown and today of Wilfred Wilcock grave in Dragoon Camp Cemetery in Belgium.
Hope that was ok.

thanks shep

i have been to previous bucksoc meetings and spoke to a few people.

i wont be there on friday but would like to enlist the help of someone from the area
in the near future to help with my research. especially as i dont have the time to go to the
archives in hawarden as they're only open during working hours.

If anyone is interested please feel free to contact me through the website.
