AS A volunteer for the War Graves Photographic Project in 2005 and 2006, I traced every one of the 270 graves of service personnel from both world wars whose final resting place lies in the London Borough of Harrow.
This involved some research with the aid of the council's cemetery section, which supported my task in no small way.
My results brought me a total of 750 images of Commonwealth War Grave Commission (CWGC) headstones, family plots and many touching inscriptions commemorating loved ones.
The highlight of my efforts was locating the 'unknown' grave of Bombardier Douglas Henry Bone, who died in 1942 aged 23, serving with the Royal Artillery.
He had been recorded on the commissions Brookwood Memorial in Surrey since 1958 as simply 'missing'. His private grave in Harrow Cemetery, Pinner Road, has now been added to the on-line CWGC register and its records.
Should anyone seek photographs of any of the graves I took, this can be arranged in return for a donation to the photographic project. In addition to the 270 graves I visited are those of many service personnel who have died since 1947 in the service of their country. We will remember them.
