Checked regions but did not spot the Capital had it's own section.

Please delete this thread. It may be useful to add the UKNIWM details at the start of the other one.
Splendid photos of the memorial and shrines.

Yes they are good photographs ruined by my ham-fisted copying. I must try and scan them. Luckily for us very little has changed within the shrine so it still looks very like the day these photographs were taken.

I have added your UKNIWM details to the first post in the thread and I'll delete this one later tonight once you've seen what I've done.

kind regards

Adam

Thanks, I appreciate your help. I supplied details of seven " missing " casualties to SNWM yesterday.

Excellent news about supplying additional names. Having seen the anual report it looks like they add or amend about 40 names a year so you've got 2010 off to a flying start!

Kind regards
