Earlier this year my wife and I visited the Military cemetery at Carnoy, near Amiens, where her uncle, William Fairbairn, also a New Zealander, who had survived Gallipoli, was buried after being killed on the Somme, aged 21. We also visited the town cemetery in Bousebeque, near Lille, where my uncle, William Mills, is buried. He was shot down flying a BE2C, aged 19. Very sad and moving, but something we had wanted to do for a long time. We were both struck by the marvellous way these cemeteries are maintained. Many thanks to all concerned with their care, particularly the French people on whose soil they are.
