|Harry Dickman, Lancashire Fusiliers.|
This was a very moving moment for me as I have wanted to visit their memorials and pay my respects for a long time.
I felt sad when my visit was over, but the Loos Memorial seems a very fitting last resting place for my relatives as they were both Lancashire miners.

Dud Corner is sited in a mining area, and immense coal spoil heaps loom large on the horizon. But you can hear the birds singing, and the cemetery is bright with flowers.
