In Memories

Thousands of British and Commonwealth young fellows came to defend the ideal of freedom during WW1 and WW2. Many of them gave their lives, fighting or victims of accidents or diseases. A lot of them were also captured by enemies but all of them , known or unknown, received a decent grave.
Each grave, each cemetery, small or large, is now part of the Commonwealth’s territory and this for eternity. Still now those cemeteries are maintained by the CWGC gardeners or for some smaller cemeteries, by the local communities where they are located. Of course there are a lot of large cemeteries and sanctuaries but many small groups of graves are isolated in local cemeteries or in the neighbourhood of churches. Most visitors are guided to the largest and most famous sites. You will see here most of them but my idea was to give back to these less well known sites more attention so that they will receive a better interest from the visitors.
In the CEMETERIES you will find in alphabetical order, all the cemeteries that we have visited including, as far as we could, the number, the names and the nationality of the victims. In the UNUSUAL you will find details of unusual features to be seen in some cemeteries such as interesting architecture or graves stones or other feature.
The EMBLEMS shows all the emblems of regiments, directly photographed from the graves. we have taken all these pictures ourselves and anyone who wishes , can get any of these, even in a larger size, by asking me by using the e-mail. As far as possible, we will also be able to send you a picture of the grave itself. (Note: only where stated at the bottom of the Cemetery page concerned, as the others are too far from our home.) I will be happy to receive your requests to my site, concerning cemeteries I don’t show or any background, photos or memories of casualties and their history.
God bless them all. May they always remain in our memories.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC))

The two world wars resulted in unimaginable losses and few people in the countries that took part remained unaffected. The men and women who gave their lives served in many different roles on land, sea and air.
The graves of those who fell and the memorials to those with no known grave provide a unique insight into our history. Read more about the key events during the First and Second World Wars and where those who died are commemorated today.
The aim of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s archive is to collect, manage and preserve materials which document the history of the organisation, the individuals commemorated and the cemeteries and memorials it maintains. Visitors are welcome to view the archive, which is based at the CWGC Head Office in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

The mission of this site is to record the stories of people connected with aviation;
- from wartime experiences where young men and women were faced with extraordinary circumstances to those in peacetime.

All Spitfire Pilots

his site has set lofty goals to document all spitfire pilots and even match the aircraft they flew. The site's premise is that users add pilot pages, and, then other users come along later with other information to add, like images, links, and comments / questions. They can also identify a Spitfire by serial number or marking if they have that information, and, link that to the pilot page. This site is launching as BETA release this September 2015 (now) so it will take time for users to add pilots, but we want to honour each and every one.
When a user adds a pilot, this pilot is listed in their profile, and, the pilot page links to them as the author. Please read our section on volunteering to find out more.

Back to Normandy

The beaches of Normandy and the countryside nearby are beautiful, peaceful and picturesque. But they were not always so – in June 1944 they saw some of the fiercest fighting of the Second World War and some of the most heroic acts of bravery and courage saw on a battlefield. The sheer valor of the men who landed on the beaches of Normandy on that wet and windy morning of the 6th of June 1944 changed the course of history and ensured that the evil forces of Nazism were defeated and that freedom returned to Europe.
Those beaches and the adjoining countryside are visited by many thousands of people of all nationalities each year, all interested, for one reason or another, to see where the action took place or perhaps to trace the footsteps of a member of their family who fought in the Normandy campaign or to see where a particular regiment or military unit fought and won on D-Day.
I hope you will be able to help, sharing your stories, photos, historical locations. By doing so you will be assisting all those who wish to learn more about World War II and helping to preserve the spirit of those courageous men who fought and died on the beaches of Normandy – the beginning of the liberation of Western Europe. And let's not forget all the airmen and sailors who made this invasion possible in the years beyond. All these men and women commemorated on this website, earn your attention.
