Looks like they've actually removed these entries from their own database. I tried a couple of names, e.g. C H R Richards, but not found in the CWGC database.

Still there but access blocked. They re-appeared briefly again at the last upgrade disaster due to a programmer's error. Some interesting stuff there.

Interesting. Seems silly to restrict access to that data, epecially pre-1945 records.

Geoff

I have had a very quick look for some UK post war casualties (mainly airborne-Paras SAS etc) but also had a quick search on name only for some WW2 SAS (Belgian and French) and managed to find 3 on that only so I now have some more headstone requests to add!

I must add using your search engines has proved to be very very useful in trying to find casualties on limited information.. so a big thank you!
