    Default War Grave Photographs

    I am seeking photographs of several Comonwealth War Graves of pilots that had served with 127 Squadron that I have yet been able to obtain.
    1 - W/O Ronald George Lewis, Tripoli War Cemetery, Libya.
    2 - F/Lt James Huntly MacDonald MacKinnon, Belgrade War Cemetery, Serbia.
    3 - F/Sgt Reginald Sydney John Linter, Nicosia War Cemetery, Cyprus.
    4 - W/O Thomas Barker Orford, Khayat Beach War Cemetery, Isreal.
    5 - F/O John Lewis Ward, Khayat Beach War Cemetery, Isreal.
    6 - Brian Rouse Terry, Moascar War Cemetery, Egypt.
    If anyone has visited any of these locations or is able to do so I would be ever so grateful if they could provide me with the photographs I require.
    Thank you
    Andy

    Sorry can not help you with this matter but if you - or anyone - want any grave here in Prague, Czech Republic, please feel free to ask.
    Also I can recommend you site: http://www.britishwargraves.org.uk/ - if you do not know it yet

    Thanks Pavel
    Unfortunatly the BWGP does not have any of the ones I'm after.

    There is one other I am after.
    It is in the UK at the Wardour RC Cemetery, Wiltshire.
    The airman in question is Flt Lt Daniel Edward Cremin.
    Is anyone able to help me obtain a photo of this memorial.
    Regards
    Andy

    Default War GRaves

    Hi Andy,

    You could try somewhere like Rootschat for the UK photo you need, you could either try posting on the appropraiate county board or on the Armed Forces board. I'm sure that someone will be able to help out. You might get some luck with some of the overseas ones as there are people that use that forum from all over the world.

    Best of luck,

    Ann

    Andy, I have been waiting to see if anyone nearer could help you with a photograph of the grave at Wardour, but as you have had no other offers I will do it for you if the matter is not urgent. Say within the next two or three weeks. Please advise.

    regards

    Andy, I may have the Lewis headstone as a friend visited the Tripoli cemetery and took RAF and RAAF headstones for me. If I haven't got it, one of her colleagues commented he would be pleased to return to take more pics.

    I'll check my computer at home and let you know.

    Andy, I have a friend who lives in Cyprus, I have emailed him and he is going to get the picture. It may not be for a week as he lives the other side of the island, and they only go to Nicosia for main shopping sprees.

    Andy,

    To update the position. I haven't forgotten, just waiting for half decent weather on a weekend.
