    Hello Phillip,
    I have been researching my fathers wartime service which by chance bought me to your brilliant website. He of course survived the war but was wounded on the 30th March 1945 near Bocholt. His unit was 'B' Company, 1st Battalion, Ox & Bucks and I note that you list four missing soldiers of his battalion on that date - can you tell me anymore about the photographs of wrecked armour you have in that section? Many Thanks, Brian.

    I found your excellent website via a link from WW2 Talk. Your efforts in trying to identify unknown soldiers is amazing. I have no link with any soldiers that were there, just an interest in what happened and great regard for the civilians in the area that suffered during the War and who helped maintain the graves of the fallen by adopting them.
    Thank you.

    Please keep up the good work.

    I will check but I am sure that won't be a problem. I will send you a pdf version.

    I have sent you a friend request on Facebook as I have also recently been looking at the story of Squadron Quartermaster Serjeant George Holderness - also from Croydon - whose went missing on 25 September 1944 at Oosterbeek.

    Philip. I am doing a short article for the November edition of my local church magazine which is concentrating on remembrance. One of the men I am writing about, Kenneth Horsley Harrison, lived locally and was also an Old Boy of my former school. He was killed on 1 November 1944 aboard Landing Craft Support (L) 256 in the attack on Walcheren. You have a lovely picture of the vessel on your website - would you mind if I used it in the article. The magazine has a circulation of about 160.
    Many thanks.

    I came across this website when looking for information on my great uncle, who was a paratrooper with the 82 Airborne (505 PIR). I learned a lot about the temporary war cemeteries and identification and retrieval process. Thank you so much for the website and thank you to the people of Molenhoek where he was buried temporarily on Sept 23, 1944.

    P.S. The English is quite good but I noticed a few corrections that need to be made. On the introduction page, the word "of" in the sentence "It started of as a website" should be spelled "off". In the next paragraph, "progress" should be "process".

    I am the daughter of Real Rolland Boyer, 23rd Field Company RCE. While my dad survived Arnhem, so many did not. These men were heroes, thank you for remembering them.
