    Thank you.

    Hello Mike

    I will be happy to do this for you, the snag is we are in lock-down. If there is no hurry and you don't get a better offer I will do it when we are released. You will need to send me a private message with your EMail address.

    regards

    Thanks Baz.

    I hope thatís an old photo there as it looks like a flake of the stone is spalling off.

    Stay well!

    Mike,

    There is a photo already available from The War Graves Photographic Project (TWGPP) (see https://www.twgpp.org/). Your man's headstone is at https://www.twgpp.org/photograph/view/2875188. Cost is minimal, response is quick and usually includes a photo of the cemetery - and sometimes more than one photo of the headstone. The photos themselves are high quality and can be sent by email.

    For those who are unaware of TWGPP it is attempting to construct a worldwide archive of all WW2 graves; the photos come from volunteers hence the low cost of the service. I've used it several times.
