to see such a fine group induces a bit of melancholy in me. my family is so large that no one knows where the memorial cross and death penny went, that were sent after we lost uncle charlie in the somme. the canadian war graves commission sent me a very nice color copy of his page in the book of remembrance, along with a new version memorial cross, but it's just not the same.

What's your Uncle Charlie's full name and Unit ?

Would be happy to keep an eye out for the Memorial Plaque and Cross.
