SIR - On a recent visit to the Woolacombe area I photographed the War Memorials at Lynton and Mortehoe. I had a quick look at the names of the men and noticed that on Mortehoe at least one name is omitted. I was hoping that I may use your columns to ask if anyone has researched the men and if people still remember their war dead - family members etc. If no research has been done on either memorial I may then proceed myself and possibly produce a booklet commemorating the men.

I can be contacted by email via my website www.ypressalient.co.uk
