In 2025 we commemorate 80 years of liberation of the Netherlands, marking the end of 5 years of war in the Netherlands (1940-1945). For this occasion, we want to give each headstone a face, so that the men and women will forever remain in our thoughts. Those who made the highest sacrifice for our freedom should never be forgotten. We place the photos next to the headstone during remembrance on May 4 and 5. And on December 24, we place a candle by each gravestone so that in these dark days around Christmas a little light may shine for these heroes. During school visits to the cemetery, we visit the graves and show the pictures and tell the story of the soldier, which often makes a deep impression on the youth when they realize how young these men and women are. Today we are looking for a photo of: https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/find-war-dead/casualty-details/2961763/wilfred-john-ackerman/ Gunner WILFRED JOHN ACKERMAN Service Number: 14602969 Regiment & Unit/Ship: 186 Field Regt.
