Two Deliveries in France

Two crosses were delivered last month in Northern France y Roy and Sue Motteram. The remembered men both died of wounds in 1971; Charles (Alder) Allen is buried in Wimereux near Boulogne and Willis Jane is buried in Le Treport Military Cemetery north of Dieppe.


Roy laying the Thame Remembers Cross at Wimereux Cemetery. The ground here is too soft for the grave stones to be set upright. The cemetery is next to the local community cemetery and contains 2847 WW1 British graves and 14 WW2.


Sue laying the Thame Remembers Cross at Le Treport Military Cemetery. Le Treport was an important hospital centre throughout WW1 and the cemetery contains 455 WW1 burials and 4 from WW2, three of which are unidentified.
