I am going down to the Somme area next Sunday(9th Nov)to pay my respects to my Great,Great Uncle Pte Walter Arbuckle of 1/6 Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. He is buried in Becourt Cemetery just outside Albert.

If anyone has any relatives buried in the Somme area then leave the details on this thread and I will do my best to visit on your behalf and take pics of the grave,cemetery etc.

Its no problem and something I would be happy to do.

Just include a prayer and my respects for all of those still there.
