    All,

    I may be visiting Tripoli any time between the end of September and the beginning of November. So, if anyone would like a grave photographed at Tripoli War Cemetery then PM me your request and your email address so I know where to send the results.

    I'm not sure how much tourism I'll be able to do as this will be a work trip but I will do whatever is possible.

    All the best,

    Skip

    No wants here `KUNO` very kindly photographed the head stones I needed just before the war. A very generous offer from `SKIP` Just a note lads (and lasses) the CWGC have posted the following on their website regarding headstones at the cemetery;-

    "NOTE: Visitors to Libya may wish to note that a major renovation programme is planned for a number of our cemeteries in the country. Headstones and other features, which have become eroded over time by the harsh climate, are scheduled for replacement. Further details will be made available shortly. We apologise for any inconvenience and we would respectfully ask visitors to be patient with us while this work is ongoing."

    Pleased to report that the CWGC gardeners are doing a fine job and Tripoli War Cemetery is, as you would expect, a serene oasis of green amidst an unsettled city ...

    Email attachments to all those with 'wants' will follow within the next 24 hours. If any of you do not receive them then please give me a nudge to resend.

    Best,
