Vee you have carried out a task over many years that I know means a lot to many people. That there are people in this world who remember as you do is a sign that WW2 will never be forgotten. You will also be remembered for what you do.

You are doing a great job Vee. It is our job to keep the memory to these men alive and pass their stories on to the next generation. By taking care of the graves we make sure these men won't be forgotten and the families know that someone is tending to the grave of their lovedones.

ps. what happened to the grass on the cemetery? Normally it is very well maintained.

Why, was it not cut, or neglected in general? Have you had rough weather lately, for maybe it was just that they couldn't work on it???
