Next Events - Spring 2017 Private tour of the SASC, Waminster.

***

Please remember that events are arranged for you to enjoy, do make the effort to attend. Meet lovely people and visit interesting places.

For a list of countries overseas where Graves are wanted for our Photographic Project, please see below. If you can help, we will be grateful, contact Judith for details.

Articles and photographs are very welcome for the next edition of Emma Gee. The magazine is only as good as members make it by sending in interesting copy.

Please help Judith by ensuring that you use Times New Roman 10 point, no indents, 'no prettying up' please. Ensure article and photograph file names link and make sense to others, not just you, e.g. name files '1234 Pt Fred Bloggs'. Making file names such as 'Dad' or 'Grandad in Mespot' will mean absolutely nothing to me if they become detached from your email, waste hours of time and may mean they will not be included!! Thank you for your help.

There are also graves present in the following locations currently experiencing conflict or severe security problems:

We appreciate help from those living and going abroad on business who photograph graves and monuments.

Every time someone takes a photograph, this requires a visit to the grave of a soldier who gave his life for our freedom. Every visit is an individual act of Remembrance for that soldier. Nearly every MGC soldier's grave has been visited.

We Do Remember Them.

Thank you to our supporters.
