    A wonderful effort Paul and with so much generous assistance from so many people. Question: which group or cemetery will be the most difficult to source do you think?

    Due to World Conflicts I would say that the War Torn countries would be the hardest to achieve, along with least visited cemeteries.

    Cheers
