Ian

The Polish memorial has name panels on the sides. Did you get images of those panels?

Adam,

Sorry, no. I can go back and have another try. The names are on shiny metal panels and with the low sun and reflections it will be a tricky job!

Hi Guys,

I was wondering if any of you can help me...
My Great, Great Grandad features on the memorial, FRED HILL.
I was wondering if anyone can help me find out more information about him. I have no information at all and its so frustrating.

Contact me anytime if anyone can find any information.

Thanks in advance!
