Sorry to say I don't know what year my father died. All I know of his service record was that he served in Sicily in the Signals and his paybook has him as Frederick Harry John George Nicholas, Lance Corporal. He rode motorbikes and he and his mates had Jack Russells as pets, so if this rings a bell I'd love to know what exactly he got up to during and after the war.

Does anybody know anything about LCpl Robin Lister who died in Northern Ireland in February 1980. I am meeting his mother later this week as she gets presented with the Elizabeth Cross.

Your Military History Filmed for the Next Generation

The Legasee war veterans project is looking for volunteers who want to tell their stories.

As part of an exciting social history project, the film company Legasee is looking for war veterans who would like to have their stories filmed for posterity.

This footage will be used to launch a unique online archive of interviews for use by schools, colleges and members of the public.

To kick-start the project, we’re looking for war veterans of any age who wish to recall their experiences in front of the camera for the benefit of future generations.
It doesn’t matter what campaign or country they served in, or what role they played. The Legasee war veterans project is completely free of charge, with any travel expenses paid – all we need is their knowledge, enthusiasm and a small amount of their time to take part in the filming.
If you know anyone that’s interested, please ask them to email me giving their name, age, daytime phone number and brief details of their wartime service so we can contact them to discuss this further.

We hope to hear from you, and please feel free to forward this email to any war veterans that you think might be interested.

Please visit our web site for more information about Legasee -

Best wishes to all for 2011

Others may already know of it but I have just come across the War Graves Photographic Project, which aims eventually to make available a photo of every grave cared for by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, for a moderate donation. Worth visiting A great service for those unable to visit a grave in person. For those with no known grave they offer a photograph of the Memorials where they are listed.

Meant to say that the snow and other bits on the heading looks really good. Gives the site a bit of chrimbo spirit.
