In their own words…
Having equipped ourselves with a computer, we were looking for some projects to do that would help us learn how to operate it. I had been aware of the military cemetery at Scottow since 1970, when, in my R.A.F. days at Coltishall, I used to frequently visit it to pay my respects and thanks to the airmen for their sacrifice. prior to a trip to New Zealand two years ago, we determined the circumstances relating to three New Zealand graves. So, armed with photographs etc, we tried to find some relatives. We were successful wth one family which resulted in a much more comprehensive project. it was during this research that we came across the three marvellous Commonwealth projects. (MLLP, AWGPA, NZAFMP).
Both Heather and I are of an age that well remembers the dark days of WW2. So, as out tribute to those from far off lands who helped us in our time of need, the least we can do is take a few photographs. We now consult the location lists before we make any journeys around the country just in case there are graves that need our attention.
We are willing to give assistance, if practical, to any relatives regarding remembrance or tributes etc.
