New Project in Aid of Armed Forces


Active member
Hi All,

Along with my Mother in Law i have started on a new project in researching the local war memorial in Congleton, Cheshire. The research will be published over 2 books and the proceeds will be going to a Forces Charity in aid of service personnel returning from active service abroad.
I would like some help from the forum members if they are going abroad on holiday or on business. I require for the project photos of headstones and memorials of the casualties named on the Congleton war memorial. The bulk of the casualties are in the Middle East but i also have some in Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Turkey, Austria, Iceland, and Malta. If anyone can help with getting photos in any of these countries please can you contact me on this thread.
I will also be sending information on the various casualties to their Regimental Museums for their records so should family or military historians ask for information on that person including any photos of them i have.
Any help with this project would be very much appreciated.
