    Would a topic/record be of interest?

    With the help of many friends I have photos of every North Irish Horseman's headstone, bar one, for both wars, and of many memorials world-wide.

    Cheers,

    Gerry

    Quite an achievement to get this far with the project, Gerry!

    The 'missing' memorial photograph looks like it could be a difficult one to achieve. But, now the request is posted here, you may get lucky.

    Ah, now I've seen where it is, I'm not surprised you've not got a photo of it yet.

    I think projects like this are brilliant. It really helps ordinary people to be able to find things so easily. Lots of effort has gone into it.Must have taken years. Congratulations
