Amazing and good that you should be doing this. Just come back from Tyne Cot and Ypres. If there are any out of the way graves in UK that need a visit, let me know. The war memorial in the chapel is so impressive/disturbing.

What an excellent undertaking. I visited Thiepval with my husband just last weekend – I wish I had known about the old Exonians whose names are on the memorial in order to have found them.
