I was delighted to be able to visit the memorial on 18 August 2021 en route back to the UK from Charente, and to see my uncle’s name engraved on pillar 195 (Robert Blyth, KOSB, 3066196, died 19 July 1944).  Huge thanks to all, for the enormous work that has gone into this wonderful memorial to the many thousands who gave their lives for the liberation of France & Europe, not least to those who have no known grave.  I have regularly visited the cemetery at Douvres where my uncle is buried, but this new memorial pays both collective and individual tribute on a broader canvas.  Thanks also for publishing his story from the information that my sister has provided.

On August 29th we visited the memorial to find the record of my mother’s uncle, Francis Alan Shore who died on 13th June 1944, which we did.  It is a beautiful place.
