Can l just say thank you to all the staff for allowing this lonely old man the opportunity to perserve the memories of all the men and women of all nations who sacrificed themselves for their countries, their families and friends. Thank you


For the WW1 Canadian forces, most list their mother as the next of kin and her surname is the same about 95% of the time, so it would be nice to have that already filled in (the same as it is for the fathers)
