    My name is Paul Mitchell and my father was in 56 Recce and I have collated the Rolls of Honour for all British Recce Regiments and am in the process of collecting Photos of Headstones/Memorials to go with them.

    The Regimental History of the 56th Recce Regt.

    I am still seeking photos from these cemeteries. Please PM me. Thanking you in advance.

    You have Plumstead Cemetery in your list. Is this the guy you're after?

    CWGC :: Casualty Details

    If he is, I'll add it to my to do list. Need to get a map first as the cemetery is mega huge.

    Here are 2 Recce guys you require from Maidstone cemetery in Kent.

    N.B.V. Side & A.G. Post.

    I've PM'd Dovermarine and apologised for getting them. I did not know until I got back today that he'd promised to do them for you.

    You should have both Besthorpe (Norfolk) and Huntingfield (Suffolk) Mitch - I did them for you earlier this year. Will try and fit the Cambridge one in as soon as I can.
