    I'm writing a book about Gravelines and the surrounding area during WWII.

    I am missing a lot of information about the English present in 1940 (6th Green Howards) and the Canadians, I can see a little bit everywhere that it would be the Black Watch and then on another conversation the Manitoba Dragoons.

    In order to have a reliable source, I am looking for any documents, photographs etc of Gravelines and the surrounding area during WWII. If you have any information on the Germans I'm interested too.

    Thank you

    Sincerely Nicolas
  2. Hi Robbie how is your book coming along? My Grandad Stanley Coleman served with the 7th Green Howards - I am conducting research with my Nana.

    Often a good idea to use the search facility of the site to see what else there is on here regarding specific criteria - so suggest you enter Gravelines into the search box and see what you get
