My father, my mother and I stumbled across Jerusalem War Cemetery thirty years ago while we toured the Normandy beaches. It was one of the most moving experiences any of us had experienced. My father was a Company Commander in the U.S. 39'th Infantry Regiment who fought in North Africa, Sicily and from Normandy to Germany. My mother, a war bride, and was a WAAF. In a week my wife and I will retrace those steps of three decades ago and will visit the cemetery once again.
I paid my respects to Elmer at his grave side at Madingley American Cemetery on 21 August 2017 - We thank you for your service, now may you Rest in Peace
My Uncle, Robert Cameron Hall died in combat June 22, 1944 near Ranville

Archie is my Great Uncle and very sad to hear his story Thank you Frank and Julie for sharing. May he be long remembered. Sarah and family.
Seventy-three years ago this morning Uncle Bertie and 906 other servicemen paid the supreme sacrifice in Normandy to defend our freedoms. The Lord Jesus Christ said, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." It is our sincere desire that Uncle Bertie and thousands others did not die in vain. May we never forget the price that was paid for our freedom by thousands in Normandy but especially by the Lord Jesus Christ.
RIP Edward from your Scottish family
I am the grandson of Les Bowron, 8th DLI who visited Jerusalem with his great grandsons to pay our respects to these brave men. I visited the cemetery with Les some 35 years ago. He wrote in the memorial book, 'They were canny lads'.

From the 11th Hussars War Diary: "2Tp and 5Tp spent the night together, and 3Tp with the Infantry. The rest of the Sqn slept in a sunken lane which was almost shell and bomb proof. Poor Tpr Humphrey in the Scout Tp was killed by a mortar that day, one could not want a better man." Rest in Peace Trooper Humphrey.
Rest in Peace Douglas Goom
