    Hi Roger,

    Welcome to the forum.

    I hadn't noticed that sorry I will have a look to see hopefully that I have still your Uncle's headstone. My computer crashed quite awhile ago and I lost a lot of my files.

    It's okay I've found it and now edited his headstone photo.

    Regards Mike.

    Hi there, Lt Jack Hornby was my granny's brother. I'm just starting out really researching him. All I knew previously was that he was killed during the landings, and now see he was crushed directing traffic off the boats. My granny sadly passed away 3 years ago, and I'm not sure she ever knew exactly what happened, but it's really interesting to find out. Thanks for posting all the info.
