Whilst doing some routine admin I came across the autosignature of our latest member, 'Spidge' from Australia. They haven't had a chance to post a message yet so I thought I'd take the opportunity to advertise why Spidge has joined the forum:

Looking to catalogue photos of all RAAF Headstones and Memorials around the world. I will be placing them on a website so they will be available free of charge to all who want them.

Deaths, 11,000+, Cemeteries 1070 in 65 countries.


I'm sure if any other members have come across any R.A.A.F. men on any headstones or war memorials on our other forum they'll contact Spidge.

Sent a PM to Spidge as there are 5 WW2 men in Grandsable, Grangemouth.

Adam Anne & Paul...............

Thank you for you offers of assistance. It is very much appreciated.

I hope to finalise the numbers of cemeteries in Scotland when I get back from interstate next weekend.

I am just on my way out the door to drive to Adelaide from Melbourne.(450 miles)


Cheers

Geoff

Hello Geoff,
I wondered if you'd seen the Turnberry memorial on the Scottish War Memorials Forum which lists a number of Australians?
You can see it here:
