Acknowledgements

There are several people I would like to thank for their help in this project.

Queensbury history society, with special mention to Pat. Michael for sharing his information and helping with research. Bob who showed me where many of the family graves are in the village cemetery. Carol and all at Holy Trinity church Queensbury. Sue and the friends of Queensbury cemetery.  Ben for sharing his information on the men from Shelf village. Members of the Queensbury (West Yorkshire) History page who have spent time trying to find and identify those more tricky casualties. The families of the fallen who have shared information, memories and photographs.

Friends, Trevor, John and Oliver for joining me on visits to France and Belgium, the promise of good beer was a helpful encouragement.  Thank you to Becky and John for help with proofreading, and to John thanks for the website.

Tracey (Doris) who has joined me on many visits to the battlefields, we have shared our journey from first time visitors to now established battlefield ‘geeks’.  Many laughs and the odd grumble have made our trips most memorable and it is safe to say that although a Leeds lass she is now an honorary citizen of Queensbury.
