    Try the British Newspaper Archives. It’s a paysite but you can usually access it for free from libraries (in Scotland at least) I used to be able to get it though my work (for some reason schools also have access) so if I get a chance this week I’ll try a search for you.

    No they can't Peter. Myself and many forum members have obtained service records on behalf of servicemen who died in the war. I obtained Harry Salt's service record in order to get his CWGC grave altered. See here

    I have been helping Dirk with info re Schijndel with war diaries, my Fathers recollections etc. I have been trying for some time to find photos of various fallen soldiers. I may have photos of the men but without any names on them I cannot be sure. It is likely that my Father knew Lockwood as Batley is the next village to Birstall, where my Father was born.

    Parents Crossland Lockwood (born 1883) & Elizabeth Firth (born 1884) marry in Dewsbury Sept 1906 Volume 9b Page 1267. Both alive on the 1939 ID Register in the Borough of Batley M.B. Yorkshire, West Riding. You should also be able to find them on the 1911 Census.

    Have forwarded the picture to people in Schijndel, where I have been invited to on October 23rd for their 75th Liberation anniversary celebrations. Many thanks for the photo, it will probably be used by the school children when they visit the graves.

    Thanks very much. That sounds wonderful. He joined the army at the same time as his brother Alfred. Neither of them came home. I didn't know anything about this until I accidentally found it one day. I got this picture from Percy's daughter Maureen, my auntie and God mother.
