Pte James Stansfield died on the 1st day of the Battle of Arras in France. In the WDYTYA show of Hugh Denis he went to Arras where his ancestor fought, it was very emotional especially when we learnt that his relative and other survivors carried the bodies to a cemetery in Neuville -Vitasse where we know where granddad was buried. Many tears were shed when we saw this show.

Another success story was on here about 4yrs ago when after 62 years I found my dad and 3 half brothers, sadly dad died before he knew but in contact with 2 of brothers. THANKS TO ALL CONCERNED
