Hi Digger,

Thats a very kind offer.

Can you tell me if Brighton, Hove or Seaford are within your scope.

Thanks,

Simon.

Hi Joan,

I'll list what I need at Seaford Cemetery.

All the men are from the Gloucestershire Regiment.

DAY.H.R. / 10/11/15 // GRAVE 2679
HALE.F.G. / 15/11/16 // GRAVE 2675
JAMES.J. / 20/10/15 // GRAVE 2680
WHITE.T. / 12/05/16 // GRAVE 3042

They were all with the 11th Battalion and none served overseas. The Battalion was based in Seaford
from Sep 1915.They must have passed away due to accidents, illness or natural causes.

Regards,

Simon.

Hi Simon,

I live quite near Brighton and Hove so no problem to pop over there. Just let me know what you need.

Hi Digger,

Thanks for your very kind offer. If you ever happen to be in the Burgess Hill area at some point I'd really appreciate a photo of this chap's name on the local war memorial:

Gunner 18254 Martin Luther Gregory, Royal Garrison Artillery



Kind regards

Steve

Thanks Digger,

No hurry for the photo - just whenever's convenient for you.

Hope you're feeling better soon.
