I am sad and sorry to announce that Tisgrannie, one of the founder members and moderator of this site passed away on the 16th February

Her sterling work with the POW database and the war grave will carry on and she will not be forgotten

Chris, what a shock this is.  I have been away since Wednesday but had been exchanging messages with her just before going.  Please pass on mine and Margaret's condolences to the family.  We will miss her but her work will live on.

I know how you feel Chris, she provided fantastic support to the Forum.
It would have been my late wife's birthday yesterday, she was born the day Singapore fell, I always blamed her for it.

I will never forget her,she was lovely,i never met her personally,but we used to chat via our PM system,she was always a chirpy little soul,i remember one occasion when she told me she was goin to the manchesters museum for one of their open days,i said I would try and meet up with her if I can.

this was her reply
hello mack
hope we can meet up at the museum,you cant miss me,i am as tall as I am wide,PRICELESS ;D ;D ;D

there were a couple of occasions during our many chats,that I detected a touch of sadness in her words,it was if a dark cloud was trying to make her sad,but it didn't seem to be winning.

when me and Charlie have finished the POW database,that will be agnes memorial to her

mack ;D

Agnes was a lovely lady, always willing to help in any way which she could.  I met her on a couple of occasions at the museum when she came to the evening talks.  She took a great interest in all things Manchester Regiment.  Certainly a sad loss to the Forum but obviously not forgotten.
