    At short notice I will be visiting Bone CWGC in Algeria this weekend. If anyone needs photographs taken please post the individual casualty details before by Friday morning (28th) - unfortunately I wont have email access after that.

    Hope I can help,

    Hello Skip,

    What a wonderful surprise and a lovely gesture - Never thought I would get my RAAF lads from there.

    Would be good to get some Hi-Res photos.

    Hope these 10 are not too much for you. I have sorted them in sections from 1 to 8 to make them easier to find.

    I have attached a photo of the cemetery plan in case you do not have one.

    temptage Who said this would be easy?

    Algeria has been on my list of 'I'll never get them' but this is a BIG surprise. I have 5 men there

    Driver SCOTT WILLIAM IV. A. 17.
    Corporal FOX JOHN HARTLEY SCRIVEN V. E. 5.
    Private Miller James Samuel VIII. B. 6.
    Corporal Windust Harold William VIII. D. 4.
    Driver HUTCHINSON FRANK VIII. E. 6.

    That will leave me with just 1 name in Algeria.....I think I can live with that!

    Skip,

    I know how much time this can take so if you have any time/inclination in the heat, is it possible for three from the Irish Brigade..

    It's a pleasure Owen - I get a lot out of this forum and normally feel pretty guilty for not being able to add much to it so here's my chance.
