This information is amazing & I have tears in my eyes as I write. My Dad, Jim, who is now deceased, never spoke of his time during the war although I knew he had been shell shocked. We knew very little of Hugh so this is great to receive this information. I thank you for this on behalf of our family & appreciate your help in contacting the family who have adopted Hugh’s grave.

Initial gravesite at Meerveldhoven.
