Erquinghem-Lys Churchyard Extension
Gnr W JACKSON - Grave: I. H. 1

Laventie Military Cemetery, La Gorgue

Hi Olivier,

I have been trying to ' buy ' the two from Haversque but there seems to be no ' buy ' icon. Only ' share ' and ' slideshow '.

The offer is still ongoing,

the photos I take a little time because the weather is not ideal for photos.

I noted the names.

The only problem is to Avesnes-le-Sec, which is much too far from my home (96km).
