Portsmouth WW2 Dead: Foreign Fields

I’ve been working on a list of the Cemeteries where Portsmouth’s WW2 Dead are buried. Now I’ve completed the database of names, the idea is to try and build up as much information about each person as possible. I know some people might think that grave photographs are slightly macabre, but I’ve heard some really touching stories. In one case, a woman had never seen her fathers grave as it was on the other side of the world, and somebody who collected grave photographs of his Regiment was able to forward her a picture of her fathers grave. Hopefully I might be able to do something similar for the men and women from Portsmouth who died in the Second World War.

This is a list of all of the Cemteries ABROAD where men are buried, and the Memorials where men with no known grave are commemorated. I would be very grateful indeed if anybody would be able to help in obtaining photographs from some of these locations. I appreciate of course that some of the countries – Burma, Libya, Iraq, Zimbabwe etc – are slightly inaccesible! I can produce a list of the men buried in each of the Cemeteries, along with names, grave reference and all other information.
