    Full marks Andy. I am very glad you and others persist in this work, these people must never be forgotten.
    Man is not lost. Only temporarily uncertain of his position.

    There are a good many similar cases that I know we could solve in this region, as we did recently (although unexpectedly) with the case of Sgt W J Smith RAAF - not to mention Derek Allen.

    Unfortunately, there is considerable resistance to our work in Pas de Calais/Nord due to the instransigent attitude of the authorities there who are less than co-operative.

    Given the outcomes we have recently achieved, and still can achieve, it is extremely disappointing to say the least. Nonetheless, I am now pressing on with the case of three British Soldiers lost in June 1940 and buried as "unknown" who I hope we may be able to identify.

    Is there a particular reason for the lack of cooperation or does it vary?

    I will tell the story in due course....!

    On reflection, and with ongoing difficulties, it might be wise for me to say nothing else at this stage.

    Watch this space, though.

    Lets just say.....entente cordiale? Hmmmmmmm..!

    Maybe not.

    Thumbs up

    Great stuff Andy.
    Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.
