    Hi Henk
    Friend , 59, is registered at Hammersmith, SW London. I was surprised at the age but it ties in with CWGC. Just a small geography lesson! Crewe is in Cheshire in the West of Middle England and Newnham is registered at Crewe
    Regards

    Thanks Dick and Ken for this excellent info. Won't take long that I know more about the UK rather then my own low country 'Pays Bas'!
    Regards,
    Henk.
