    If you get the first 30 odd thousand listed - any chance of adding Royal Indian Artillery as well, a real pig to research......

    All 2671 of them.

    Eventually, I also have in mind Australian (2284), Canadian (2142), Malta (115) and New Zealand RA (902) as well.

    Hongkong & Singapore are cropping up in my current project and I have about 800 (of the 1115 listed) so far of these.:)

    Have I forgotten any?. If so I apologise.

    Hi Robert, took these this morning while out with the dog. Its a combined memorial to RA and US AA. The americans were there during the V1 (doodlebug) attacks to provide extra firepower. The otherone is to the RFC. I hope these are ok, Derek.

    Many thanks Derek.

    Rather appropriate that they are near the old radar masts.

    Regards - Robert

    Hi Oldman

    The eventual intention is to be able to search by surname, regiment, Battery, Cemetery.

    I've got all the raw data on casualties and any photos of headstones anyone can get will be a plus.

    Many thanks - Robert.

    PS - Can't find EP's post on 626 Field Squadron RE.

    Thanks for those Rob D. Duly filed.

    Owen cracked me up about the 68 Medium War Diaries. I absolutely howled with laughter.
