    Since there seems to be such uncommon demand, I'll pin this thread so it stays more visible.

    Donnie I think this is the cemetery you are looking for on Google earth

    Copy and paste these into Google earth and then you can at least show your grandad where he is buried in the photo view from above and you pan out and look at the surrounding area

    Never ceases to amaze me what modern technology can do

    I'd better not put my request on there! I have 88 of my Airborne chaps in Tabarka, and another 388 in 3 of the ones Spidge mentions. Oh well I will have to try and get out there for a holiday so I can do at least one of them!

    Regards to all

    yeah i think 88 is too much! could always try down the same route that i did....maybe the CWGC will be more helpful with you.

    Thanks Owen,

    I sent an email to see whether they have photos or whether they would pass my request for assistance onto the people doing the tour. I will await the response.

    Possibly a flat "no" however if you do not ask...........................!
