“When you go Home, tell them of us and say, For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today”
My father would have been 100 years old this year but I never knew his birthday...I was three years old when he was killed.
Thinking of you again at this time of remembrance
We may never have met but I will always remember you xx
RIP Uncle Ron
As a child in 1960/70's I lived next door to Eric Swinney's mother. A lovely, sweet lady in Darras Hall, Ponteland, Northumberland. Her cottage was on Woodside and called Geelong (a reference to Australian connection) since demolished. I remember a colour-tinted photo of Eric which hung pride of place in her cottage. I was and am still a great horse-lover. 'Nana Swinney' gave me a hunting crop which belonged to her son Eric which I have treasured, it has spent time in the USA when I lived there and now resides in our Farmhouse in Derbyshire . Wish I'd asked more about Eric and how she'd coped with loss. Have seen his name in the memorial books of St Clements in London. Bless him xx
Although I never met you uncle Roy I wish to thank you for your service and sacrifice, your brothers son Robert

My father, my mother and I stumbled across Jerusalem War Cemetery thirty years ago while we toured the Normandy beaches. It was one of the most moving experiences any of us had experienced. My father was a Company Commander in the U.S. 39'th Infantry Regiment who fought in North Africa, Sicily and from Normandy to Germany. My mother, a war bride, and was a WAAF. In a week my wife and I will retrace those steps of three decades ago and will visit the cemetery once again.
I paid my respects to Elmer at his grave side at Madingley American Cemetery on 21 August 2017 - We thank you for your service, now may you Rest in Peace
My Uncle, Robert Cameron Hall died in combat June 22, 1944 near Ranville
