August 13, 2017 ~ New adoption graves

Dear friends

During the past few months I have adopted 2 more war graves. Or better, 2 names on the Wall of the Missing.

The first one is the name of William John Buckingham. He was a Lance Corporal in the British army and was in the Middlesex Regiment, 3rd/10th Battalion. His name is mentioned on the Memorial to the Missing at the Tyne Cot Cemetery.
All the information I found about him so far, you can find here: Buckingham.

The seond one is the name of Harry R. Lee. He was a Private in the Canadian Infantry. Lee was an American who joined the Canadian Army. His name is mentioned on the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing. All information I found so far, you can find here: Lee.
