A selection from more very kind comments we have received:

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for our research and posting information on the casualties from the two wars … I was so pleased and shocked to see a photograph of [my great uncle]. Thanks to the efforts of all concerned in the construction of the web site, you are a credit!!!!!"

soldier's sewing kit, WWII"An amazing amount of information is compiled within the pages of this website. Not only the armed forces, but also civilian casualties are noted here, with glorious photos and write ups. It brings home the severity of the conditions endured by the people of Dover in the World Wars. Apparently run and compiled by volunteers - a masterpiece!"

"I am very pleased to see such excellent work being undertaken in honor of the sacrifices Dover has made."

"I was absolutely fascinated to read through your website on the Dover War Memorial. It is a brilliant project and beautifully put together. If only every town would do the same!"

"Thank you for all you do to keep those memories alive. Many people, living and dead, owe you a lot."

"I am sure if my grandmother was alive today she would be so proud her son is remembered in this way."

"Your outstanding help over the last two years should be winning you many awards and lots of funding."

"I just loved your Dover memorial website. Lovely tributes to those that have carved a better world for us to live in…"

"My compliments on a wonderful site - I have spent many hours browsing when I should have been working!"

"I am currently researching my grandfather's military record and found your excellent web site.  I was absolutely amazed to find a photo of my Grandfather as I was to learn how he died.  None of my family knew how he died, and nor were there any existing photos of him."  solcier's testament

"Thanks for your efforts and for your caring interest in all of the Dover WW1 casualties.   We are lucky to have you!!!"

"What a wonderful and appropriate web site you have for war heroes"

"I was casually searching the web a couple of days ago …and found my great, great uncle’s entry on your ‘casualties on the memorial’ page. It was such a wonderful surprise!!  I want to thank you for such a great on-line site."

"I have been looking again at the website and it really is a fantastic resource; they should exist for every town really! "

"What you do is so very important and I applaud all you do. It must be so comforting for those left behind when they see your work - well done you. It will never surprise me to see you receive an award from the Queen."

"What a great job. I can’t say thanks enough to you. I will be forever in your debt."

"You have made [my friend] a very happy man. He was speechless when he saw the write up and photo of his brother that you haveon your website and he sends you his thanks for all you have done"

ARP warden's whistle. WWII"It has been a great experience working with you.  Your dedication in assuring the long term retention of the memory of the fallen soldiers of Dover has encouraged me to think more about the sacrifices that they made.   It has been too easy for all of us to gloss over the lives of these long gone servicemen listed on War Memorials without thinking about the details of how they lived and died. I intend to make sure that the family history that I am producing will have a significant section devoted to the military service of all of the individuals in the family tree."

"The information you have provided me so far has been so detailed and instructive, that I doubt I should need to make any further queries at the moment [for my research]. You have cleared this mystery for me! The Memorial Project is certainly in good hands."

"I applaud your work on the Virtual Memorial, which will help future generations understand the great sacrifice these men made in the service of our country."

"The project web-site is really good and very touching that so much effort is being made to create such a memorial."

"I fully support the work you’re doing and believe in a sense the piece you've done to my great-great granddad is ''his'' memorial as he doesn't have one at his grave. Thank you."

"I know that you are a dedicated volunteer, and should be commended for the wonderful work that you do. …..Thank you, and bless you for the countless families you help."

"The whole of your website reflects back on your caring nature"

"It is a shame that you don't get paid for all the hard effort you put in."

"Your exceptional work with the Dover War Memorial Project emphasizes the importance of remembering those poor souls who died in the two World Wars. I too believe they should be remembered as individuals, and through their stories help future generations understand the history of their times."

"You deserve recognition for your joint efforts on The Dover War Memorial Project. It is one thing to have a great idea, another to pursue it for a while, and totally something different to produce a site with the depth of research, quality, and time that underpins yours."
