What a great site!
« on: August 15, 2018, 10:42:04 AM »
Within a matter of hours I have found out about our long lost relative who was always rememberd ,but we knew little of his end. The war diaries have given the final information , Archie Fraser Killed by a bomb that was dropped at De Panne on the 13th November 1917! So sad as Archie Fraser had fought through from 1914 and just a few months away from the end of the war!.

Fireball,  I was particularly moved by re-visiting your original posts of 15th August 2018 where the children have been photographed.    PhilipG.
