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 (plus the family resemblance) Thanks to the efforts of all concerned in the construction of the web site, you are a credit!!!!!"

"Can I firstly say a big thank you, not only for the interest you have already taken in my research but for also being so kind and enthusiastic! It's so nice of you to offer so much helpful advice and to take such an interest in what I am researching"

"I have to tell you, I had tears in my eyes when I opened your envelope of information today – I wouldn’t be of a man if I couldn’t tell you this would I?"

"Every time you have replied to an e-mail you have answered in a very knowledge manner"

"Thank you so much for your very kind email and for going to so much effort to try and help me find out more about my grandfather, you really have gone to a lot of effort "

"The way his story has developed this week has left me feeling quite stunned. …. All this has come from the funeral report and the extra info it gave me. You've been a complete marvel, Maggie, the way you've conjured all this up."

"I do wonder how you survive if you are as generous with your time, knowledge and ideas with all your enquirers as you have been with me over my enquiry. I'm very grateful!"

"You really have been an incredible partner on the Walter Tull project, and I constantly mention the Dover War Memorial Project to people and orgs. Your work deserves to be recognised "

"Can I just say a big big thank you for a wonderful day at the centre in Dover and a great big well done for all your hard work, and Simon as well"

"I would like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you for your letter re my brother’s name being placed on the memorial. To say we are grateful would be an understatement. Be assured all your time and effort has been very much appreciated by many people here, no more than by my family. Once again thank you and say it has been a pleasure to have met you. Most sincerely"

"May I take this opportunity to commend you for your effort in having my father’s name along with those names of other Dovorians onto their rightful place upon the Dover War Memorial. My brother also sends his thanks and best wishes for your endeavours in making this happen."

"My mother is crying with joy that after 65 years her brother's name is on the new plaque for the War Memorial."

"I have been very pleased to read the entry in the memorial regarding him. ……I congratulate you on all the work you have put in to produce such a fine record of those who lost their lives in the two world wars."

"I would like to thank you once again, on behalf of my brother and me, for the hard work and time that must have been involved in getting the dedication of the plaque under way. The time spent in visiting all the relatives, collating all the details and the travelling alone must have involved many hours. a big, BRAVO ZULU. (In naval signalese, a big well done)"

"May I say what a fantastic idea this website is and I wish you every success in gathering information on all whose names are inscribed on the Memorial. The website is a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives in the service of their country, and a very poignant reminder of the human cost to the families involved."

"I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic work you are doing on the Dover War Memorial Project. You have taken something on that is really big and you will succeed because you are the perfect people for the job"

"I trust you will continue with your wonderful work which, as a remembrance to the dead, does so much for the living."
