The weather was lovely and sunny and going by the list I had, I would need every day to be the same. Our first cemetery was Bailleul Communal cemetery Extension. We have visited this cemetery, just inside France on a number of occasions and with all the cemeteries I know where most of the men from earlier visits are buried.This time it was four of my 9th Bn Sherwood Forester men who died of wounds during the Messines attack. One of the men was buried in the same grave as an Australian Military Medal winner. It is not unusual to find more than one man in a grave but this isthe first time I have found men from different countries. MATTHEWS ALPHONSO; BAYLISS WALTER; MACFARLANE F B; HOLMES HARRY, (BURIED WITH BRADBEE E D, MM) I took my photos and signed the visitor?s book. The cemetery looked immaculate and the red roses stood among the graves. The cemeteries and memorials are always a credit to the CWGC staff. The sun was breaking through the mist and the hills towards Kemmel were covered in a light mist. The ground covered in early morning dew. We then decide to walk along the Prom at De Panne and despite the rain it is a pleasant stroll. We drive to Calais and to the Ferry. A good drive through England and home. Another good visit to Ypres. In memory of all the men who?s graves we have visited. We will remember them Steve and Barbara Morse September 2005 Edward Daniel Bradbee Edward Daniel Bradbee was awarded the following honours: Military Medal Service Number 2335 Service Army Rank Acting Corporal Unit 12th LTM Bty Conflict First World War Date of London Gazette 26 April 1917, page 3948, position 9 Date of Commonwealth of Australia Gazette 21 August 1917, page 1786, position 21
