    Dear followers of this thread. I consider to end this year with posting as before. For 2 years I've posted the names on the day they have died/killed. I'm going to update the first post of this thread once in a while and reply my updates in a new post. Because the main website Home | Canadian War Cemetery, Adegem will remain and provided by the so far missing profiles. And it will not end once this is all done.
    Many thanks for the likes and of course I'm very interested if new information about one of these soldiers comes available.
