    There Friday morning for a few hours, Michael and providing I can get to them I'll see what I can do. There is a section of the cemetery that is for the service to be attended by Veterans and families only which I can't get to. Email me the names and grave references and I'll try my best.

    It's pleasure to help you out Michael. I was determine to get back to Bayeux cemetery after being refused access on the 5th due to there being a ceremony in progress.

    Whilst there I met a charming and very witty veteran who suggested I also visit the Jerusalem cemetery which is on the outskirts of the town. The cemetery is the final resting place for 47 British and 1 czech soldiers. As always, It was a very moving experience.

    Saw that someone had obtained the photos for you, Michael so didn't take them myself. I did visit the graves though and tipped a nod in their direction for you.
