    Maybe a bit self indulgent but I did some research a while ago into the death of my uncle Harry White of the 4th Green Howards on 29th May 1940 that may be of interest (see attachment in two parts) .
    It's highly likely that fellow Green Howards J H Bonnard , I. Mcelroy and W G Upton were killed and William Desmond Chapman badly wounded in the same incident (shell explosion ).

    I'm in Ypres a week on Sunday, Craig. I was planning on popping in to the cemetery to pay respects to the lads in the 1940 plot so I'll certainly tip a nod at Harry's grave.

    Appreciate that :salut:, Harry's loss was keenly felt in the family as no doubt were all the others.

    No problem. I'll place a cross and post a pic.
