    <But now we're desperate to return the dog-tags we've found and I will travel nationwide, if that's what it takes.">

    Easily done put them back in the field.
    As they were never issued how can any family say they were their relatives tags?

    Hi Ron,

    Sadly your dog-tag isn't there, although I have the dog-tags with the number issued 8 less than your number! A guys you probably could have met! I am still cleaning and listing them, so fingers crossed that it may still yet turn up. If it does I will be I touch right away. Fingers crossed!

    Not surprised you not there Ron, you were in Italy.
    Article says these were for chaps off to Normandy.

    I thought that, but on the other thread he wrote this:

    "Despite these tags never being issued, all these soldiers fought. In all theatres and the earliest soldier enlisted when the Connaught Rangers existed, pre 1922!"

    Not sure what article that was, the press all seem to add a random bit of nonsense! These dog-tags come from every area of the war. Dunkirk Evacs, Italy, Africa, W' Europe, NW' Europe, Cyrenaica, Western Desert, Burma, Greece....

    In the article post #1 . I only read ''those of British soldiers who fought and died during the Normandy landings'' didn't pick up on the ''including'' before that. Red faced about that.

    Don't worry, we all do that from time to time. Oh, something I didn't mention earlier, just so we are clear not one of these dog-tags is for a KIA, hundreds of wounded's, but all active soldiers.

    Do the mods think that the two threads could be merged? I'm worried I'm going to miss something if I have to read two threads on the same subject;). They are turning out to be very intriguing
