So as requested here is my why I started on this frustrating (and occasionally enjoyable and rewarding ) hobby of ours. Just after my father died in 2004 his brother, the last surviving, asked me to look for the name of his uncle who was killed in WW1. The only information I had was my uncle's memory of where and when, Belgium 1917 and that he could of been a machine gunner. Oh and the surname of Smith!!!! Why oh Why oh Why did I say I would do it?
