Eric,
Excellent photos of a great monument, thanks for sharing with us. What a shame you didn't get to meet anyone.

Would you be happy for us to display your photos of the monument in the appropriate album in the CVA Gallery?

Regards,
Nick

Hi Eric

I agree with Nick, fantastic images of the memorial, Eric has also PM'd me some excellent info and a map concerning Operation Myrmidon, which I am hoping that he will post on to the main site for all to see and read.

Cheers Andy

Eric, thank you for the photos that you took of the Memorial. I have created an album in the War Graves, Memorials and Plaques gallery and posted them there. They can be viewed via this link:
