    Default Appeal For Help

    Folks,

    I am hoping to have a memorial erected in Newtownards to 13 soldiers who were killed in a German Air Raid on Newtownards airfield in 1941.

    I have a section on my website which gives information relating to the raid and the names and details of those who were killed.

    My intention is to have a picture included on the site of ALL the gravestones of those who were killed and if I can include a picture of the soldier then that will be an added bonus.

    Those who were killed include :-

    BELLAMY, WILLIAM Initials: W Nationality: United Kingdom Rank: Fusilier Regiment/Service: Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers Unit Text: 70th Bn. Age: 28 Date of Death: 16/04/1941 Service No: 6983155 Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead Grave/Memorial Reference: Sec. C. Grave 7629. Cemetery: SUTTON-IN-ASHFIELD CEMETERY

    CARLISLE, ALEXANDER Initials: A Nationality: United Kingdom Rank: Lance Corporal Regiment/Service: Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers Unit Text: 70th Bn. Date of Death: 16/04/1941 Service No: 6984668 Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead Grave/Memorial Reference: Panel 11. Column 2. Memorial: BROOKWOOD MEMORIAL


    If anyone is in the area of these locations can you please consider taking a photograph of the headstone and e-mailing it to me at the website e-mail so I can include it on the website - I will of course include a thank-you for your assistance.

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.

    Hello ww2ni,

    I managed to find and photograph L/Cpl Carlisle's name at Brookwood. PM me your e-mail address and I'll send the photos to you.

    Jim.

    This forum has the makings of a very widespread network of members who can photograph items in their locality for people who cannot travel to the areas. I know for a fact that Jim C needs grave photos from several parts of the country for his project!
