    Two more visits today Horden Cemetery to visit old friend and comrade John Major. then to Easington to visit a lads resting place there!
    Went to Easington Cemetery to visit a NI casualty grave for NIVA, L/Cpl Richard Miller . I asked the Manager John Surtees if he could help me with location . what a lovely man he went that extra inch so I could do so. He knew wor Paddy. Thanks To John he saved me a long look about to find grave it was a family stone with out his help I would never have found the lad. I left a Niva Poppy Cross and laminated NIVA Card!pics to follow Curtesy of wor Jock .

    Our records show that Sig Royal was cremated and his ashes scattered in the garden of remembrance. I was not aware there was a grave marker. If by chance you live nearby, is there any chance you can get a photo of it for our records.
