Some modern (2010) views of the incident area, taken from the same direction as those 70 years ago, are also included (photographs by John Shepherd).

Contents submitted by contributors:
Arthur was my uncle that I never met. I was handed down his medals, hat band, photo and last letter he ever wrote.

Although he died at 19-years old he was never out of his parents and siblings mind and all our family were brought up to remember him.

Always loved and never forgotten
