  11. Hi Oriel,

    Thank you for the offer. The ones in red are those that I have already received.

    There are quite a few that I require in Wales. What counties have you photographed?

    If my geography is correct, these are the requirements in Wales.

    Geoff,
    My most sincere apologies for having overlooked having some decent manners and repling earlier to the above.
    Of the above headstones the only one I can offer is Pembrey (I live in Pembroke, that is 'Benfro').
    Would also like to find R.A.F. service history (No CWGC req'd) on the following buried at Llanion;
    + Scutts, died of his wounds at the Military Hosptial P.D. (now South Pembs Hosptial), can anyone supply details of the incident please.
    + Flt Lt Glyn Rowlands survived W.W. 2
    + Sgt Norman Jack Rolfe KIA 05 Mar 1942 probably on Blenheims out of Aldergrove.
    + Details of Sunderland Mk 1 of 210 Sqdn in which Cpl Ronald W Ewens, A.C. 1 Lawrence Murphy of Waterford and A.C. 2 W/Op Jack Moss died Sept 1939. Ewens was related by mrge to David Malpass (RAF) killed in flying accident(full info known), having joined the RAF in New York USA.
    + Ivor George Luke R.A.F. Pilot 1939-45 survived W.W. 2
    + Cpl Ernest Edward Needs R.A.F.V.R. still serving aged 60 years died June 1946
    + George Young born 1924 died 2006 served with the R.A.F.
    + Frederick Peter Cook died 1999 aged 87 yrs served R.A.F.

    Let me know if you still need Pembrey and will get over in the new year. I have over 3,700 jpegs with Pembrokeshire connection includes hundreds of R.A.F. in my database, is there any that you may be interested in.

    Hi Owen,

    Thank you!

    I do already have Pembrey and the other 2,906 Australians buried or memorialised in the UK.

    I do not have the info on RAF lads unless there was an Australian on the aircraft.

    Might I suggest you list these people separately on threads so they receive more attention.

    Cheers

    WW2 pilot's remains found after 75 years
    The remains of a distinguished Spitfire RAF pilot were found by a metal detectorist 75 years after he was killed in a mid-air crash.

    Sqn Ldr Daniel Cremin, 25, died in 1942 when his plane came down over Cornwall.

    Mark Cremin, said a sealed coffin of his father's remains was sent to his family and buried in Wiltshire but it "may have just been sandbags".

    Sqn Ldr Cremin's bones have now been interred in his original grave after being discovered last year.
