I love this photo of the Tyne Cot Memorial, is it one of yours Spike? You don't always see the composition of the sweeping curve of the Memorial like this with the headstones and flowers in the foreground.
In memory of John Bardgett (15309 L/Cpl.), 11th Border Regiment who died 1st July 1916.

That is a wonderfull picture Spike thanks very much. I am really chuffed with what you are doing to my threads by the way.
Have i not sent you one if i haven't very sorry and i will get on with it later once a get the lap top off my daughter where all my pictures are.
Can i ask what do you think off what i have done with the pictures from Google of where the chaps used to live ?
Would you also like these last pictures i found in Cockermouth yesterday ?

Like John Hunter, Horace is a chap i have taken to my heart to be honest.

Mike,

I like the idea of showing where the men lived on here....

I would be interested in your latest set of pictures, especially the Walter Banks gravestone
in the previous post.
I must have missed the H Pearson-Parker family grave as i would have put it on site if
I had it.

Very many thanks for your hard work 8-)

Am glad you liked it Spike cheers.
Did you follow my insructions ok by the way ?
Iwas talking to my dad yesterday and if you notice a couple of the lads lived in Derwent Street, which unfortunately is not there any more but that is where my nana and granda and the family used to live at number 36. So more than likely my grand parents probably knew the familys.
It was called Gasrow in them days.
