Hi Shattonblade - do you have a picture of Private Reuben HEAP?

Kris is heading up to Burnley next week to gather information on those who served in the forces. I'll ask him to add this soldier to his list of who to look for in the newspapers.


Kris, I hope you don't mind this cheeky request. I'll text it the details to you tomorrow if you don't read this message before you leave.

No I haven't Mel sorry, only just discovered him. Have now collected a few Soldier relatives from Burnley and am thinking of maybe next year going over to Belgium/France to photograph their memorials.

OK, no problem. If Kris does not get chance to look for a newspaper article, I will the next time that I am there.
