Hi Lee,

Here are the list of names you want to be getting started.

Barton. Thomas Beech. Rifleman. The Kings (Liverpool Regt) Gresford (All Saints) Churchyard. South-west of church tower.
WW1
Bratby. James Frederick. Private. Royal Marine Light Infantry. PLYMOUTH NAVAL MEMORIAL. Panel 7
WW2
Bayley, Edwin, Plymouth Naval Memorial, Panel 64, Column 2
Finney, James Leslie, Plymouth Naval Memorial, Panel 55, Column 2
Foden, Norman Eric, Plymouth Naval Memorial, Panel 86, Column 2
McDonald, Arnold, Plymouth Naval Memorial, Panel 70 Column 2

You may find that the ones on Plymouth memorial only have initials rather than their full names.

Kind regards
Mike

All of Belguim has now been completed with many thanks to Mark Banning of M.G.P. Tours which does Battlefield Tours on the Western Front. If anyone is planning one of these trips i can recommend you use Mark as his knowledge on the Western Front is awesome. His website is www.mgbtours.com

Thank you Mark.

Thats fine Lee, they aren't going away, haha. The WW1 casualties are needed for publishing next year so we have plenty of time to get the rest. The WW2 casualties are needed for the following year.
Regards
Mike
