Hi Bill,

Premont is one of the cemeteries on my list 'to visit' on the first weekend in May. If you have still had no luck by then just let me know and I would be more than happy to take a photograph for you.

Best wishes,

Tim

Although predominantly filled with late 1918 casualties, this cemetery also contains the grave of my Grandfather's pal Sergeant Callaghan 19th Hussars and 2 privates of the same regiment. These men were killed in August 1914 and illustrate the circularity of the Great War.

We will remember them.
