Hello,
It may well be that someone has already posted on this subject, but if not, I'm sure participating in this is of interest to us all.
If anyone interested would care to click on the link below, all is explained. I found it as a link from the monthly CWGC Newsletter, which, as you will know, is sent on the first of each month after completing a simple Registration process with them.
Regards,
Mark.

Also just noticed this, and I've added my name. Not knocking the scheme, but can't help wondering if an an opportunity has been missed by not displaying the names of the fallen as well; it would have enforced the link between the present and the past very effectively.

IWM mostly gets it right. I'm sure this will be in keeping with their usual high standards.
