    I know it's not CWGC, but seems an appropriate spot.

    From the ABMC's Facebook feed:

    American Battle Monuments Commission


    Watch footage of the 1945 Memorial Day event held at Margraten U.S. Military Cemetery, which was established as a temporary cemetery during World War II. The cemetery became one of the 14 permanent World War II memorial cemeteries maintained by ABMC. Known today as Netherlands American Cemetery, it was dedicated in 1960.

    My dad gave me these photos of my grandfather's grave(S).
    He was in the RAMC and one of the casualties at the field hospital/dressing station in the Battle of the Admin Box in Burma.

    I found this batch of photos in the War Diary of the Carelton & York Regt. Taken in February 1945 in Bologna War Cemetery, before they moved to North West Europe from Italy.

    Another one I've found when going through some odds and ends in my collection - a current picture is available on findgrave.com

    I have another I can think of to a Signaller from Aberdeen, but I cant remember where I've put it for the moment.

    Regards
