What a fantastic website, so informative, interesting and friendly. I taught in England for many many years and took early retirement in 2003 and am now living and working in western China. I am originally from the north east of England and my childhood memories in the late 40's early 50's are filled with tales of both wars in general but WW2 in particular. During family get togethers parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties would talk about their experiences and I would listen. One name kept cropping up, not a relation but the son of a neighbour. He had died during the war. With time on my hands here and little else to do than spend a lot of my time on the internet I decided to find out more about the 'son' of our neighbour. He is remembered on a local war memorial as simply E. Y. Adamson My search on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website shows Pte Edward Young Adamson. Service Number 4399392 Special Air Service Regiment (AAC) B Sqd 1st Date of Death 7/7/1944 Buried at Rom Communal Cemetary, I have found short references to Operation Bulbasket (the internet is my only source of reference) to the incident which occured at this time where a number (30) of his colleagues and an American Airman were involved. The result is that they are buried alongside him at Rom all with the same date of death. The village of Rom is in the Department of Deux-Sevres and is approximately 44 kilometres east of Niort and 5 kilometres west of the town of Couhe-Verac, which is in the neighbouring Department of Vienne Can anyone enlighten me further. Here in China I don't have access to books. Many many thanks.
