    Thanks for your offer.

    I got Verrieres all bar three from Bayeux. Here is the link and the ones required are in black

    I got him most of Normandy, including the one at Beny-Sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery.

    Jim (Verrieres) has left the Forum I believe. Has not posted since Feb of 2012.
    Only three

    Hi,
    Just to bring you up todate I requested through another forum member a few weeks ago the three outstanding DLI from Bayeux for him so I believe thats complete now Rob did a fantastic job in getting him the rest.
    Robs is right Jim has left but still runs his DLI website. I believe the outstanding headstones for the France 44 period are still;- :unsure:
