Permalink Closed

having expressed  my thanks to Mrs Maria Eck Bullard for confirming that Allen Streich is my lost relative.i would now like to thank Mr Andrew Keasler of the US Embassy in London who not only provided me with among other information that Allens name is commemorated on the tablets of the missing in The American Military Cemetary in manila and while looking at the cemetary website and through a major stroke of luck i have found my other cousin lyle killed at vella lavella is Lyle Weidner US marine corps.yesterday was a wonderful day for our family.i have many more avenues of enquiry to pursue and still hope to find any living relatives but again i cannot thank enough Mrs Eck Bullard and Mr Keasler for all their help and kindness.every remembrance day/veterens day our family place a cross of remembrance in memory of our great uncle Private George Turbefield of the 2nd Battalion the Essex Regiment who joined up under age was killed in actionaged 18 and lies in the British Military Cemetary in the pas de calais and though allen and lyle were not forgotten with no surnames we could not honour them properly.this year however a cross honouring lyle and the fallen at vella levella and Allen and his shipmates of the indianapolis will be joining great uncle George in a little churchyard in upminster England.
