I'm retired and have nine grandchildren who I spend a lot of time with. One of my interests is connecting with people overseas on the internet who will visit war graves and take photos for family members who are unable to go there themselves.|

|EricH||Sgt Vincent Bowen, M.M. & Bar|
Hi, Margaret Rose,
I believe you may know something of Vincent Bowen, killed near Arras on 26th August, 1918. For the past 17 or 18 years, I have been researching the War Dead of the village of Areley Kings, Worcestershire. As Vincent is not on the village war memorials, I was unaware of his existence until a week or two ago. He was not born in the village (although his father was) but lived here as a child so I have been trying to trace as much information about him as I can.
He appears as a child on the 1901 Census but left for Canada, with his family, in 1909 (his father 2 years earlier), and settled with them in Guelph, Ontario.
It is my intention to have him added to our War Memorial and to include as much information about him as I can in my now (mammoth!) written memorial to the 20 other lads of the village who gave their lives in the two World Wars and the Falklands conflict.
I should be truly grateful if you have any information about him - or his family - that you would be willing to share.
With warmest good wishes,

Thanks Margaret, I will follow the link you sent.

Hi - my wife and I are doing some research after finding some war time letters and cards that her mother had held on to (she sadly passed away in 2015).
We have a letter to my Mother In Law from (we believe) Pte Boultinghouse sent to her from Stalag VIIIb
We noticed you had left a message on his record and wonder if you knew anything more about him ??

You are most welcome. Our men deserve to be recognized and remembered. Shirley

Thank you for your response and for the information which is most useful.
I went to Towcester Road Cemetery this afternoon and took a photograph of his memorial grave.
When I have learnt how to upload it, I will.

I see you have left some virtual flowers on his memorial.
Do you have any information about his family back in Hamilton Ontario?
I am looking for a picture of him for a presentation I am doing of soldiers buried in Towcester Road Cemetery, Northampton.

|Christiane Kennedy||RE: Francis George Logan|
I was in Winnipeg last week and I did go to Brookside Cemetery to find the tomb of George Logan and Violet Logan, Francis' father and mother. I did take a picture of the tomb, he was located in the Military section. I was told by the Cemetery Office Administrator that Violet was cremated and her remains were buried over his grave. She did not have a tomb or plaque. I also received individual pictures of each of them from my mother. I'm not sure how to go about to add to the pictures on this site and wonder if I should send the electronic pictures to you. And if yes, how? :).

Margaret, thank you so much for posting the article and photo for Richard Staples, my great uncle. I would like to know why you posted it---did someone request this? If so, I would like to be connected with that person and I would like to know where you found the article. I have been longing for a photo of him.
Thank you again, Catherine Staples, Toronto
