All the best,

Firstly may I ask Tim if I can contribute to his costs for the photographs? (irrespective of what follows).

And secondly, in view of the thread concerning the cost of Bandwidth for the forum, it is my intention to donate £1 per headstone to the forum, as without the Forum, I would never have seen Tim's kind offer.

Hi Tim,

You do seem inundated with requests, but if you get a chance could you take a photo of:

Major Bevil Brian Quiller-Couch, RFA, died 6 February 1919. He is at IX F 3.

In return I am happy to do a lookup at the PRO for you, just let me know.

Thanks alot

Alie.

Hi Greenwoodman,

I will try my best. I have never been there before so I do not know whether or not I will be able to get a good overview photograph. I will, however, endeavour to get you the best shot possible.

In regards to your kind offer earlier on in the thread no money will be necessary. I have had such wonderful help from so many people on this forum that I am glad to be of service back.

All the best,

Tim

Hi All,

I have gathered up all the details from the forum and email and I will let you know how I got on when I get back. I will be returning on the 27th May so I would imagine that after processing and the like it will be about a week after that before I can get them on the forum.

See you all in a week and a bit.

All the best,

Tim
