    Hello all,
    For a commemoration project I am looking for a photograph of Pte. Charles Thomas Ford 6089697 and Pte Leonard Henry Palmer 6091538 both in the Queen’s Royal Rgt. Both were KIA during the Escaut battle may 1940. Both are buried in our village Anzegem Flanders, Belgium. Sometimes such photographs are available in old newspapers from that period. Any advice gratefully accepted. Thank you Stay safe.
