    Hi Chris, Thats another one for me to go and photograph (Pte Riley). I will do that when I go back to photograph Pte Mariners grave when they put up a headstone. Are there any others from both wars buried in W Australia that I may have missed?

    Cheers
    Paul

    Sorry Paul

    that one is nothing to do with IFCP; will check with IFCP to see who else is likely to be recognised in W Australia.
