I am a kiwi Army officer posted to a peacekeeping mission in Egypt. While here, and as part of my research on a book about the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade, I have visited most of the accessible Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) cemeteries from the First World War. All of them contain graves of Australians, mostly light horsemen. If anyome out there would like me to take a photograph of a particular grave, I would be happy to do so, as long as you tell me exactly where to look (i.e the cemetery, the full name of the soldier, and the grave number). I'll post a print to anyone who gives me an address, at no cost to you. I have ready access to the CWGC cemeteries in Cairo, Alexandria, Suez, Port Said, Ismailia, Qantara, Be'er Sheva, Haifa and Ramle. The others (Jerusalem, Gaza, Deir el Belah, and Damascus) are inaccessible to me for security reasons. Please forward your requests to me before the end of September 2001, so that I have time to act on them before I return home to Godzone (thats New Zealand!) in early November. Regards, Terry Kinloch Lieutenant Colonel New Zealand Army
