Having now had the chance to look through the files you gave me, I wanted to thank you for all your work on this project as well as for the wonderful tour you gave us last Sunday morning. Tony and I learnt a lot and, more importantly, gained a much better feel for the environment in which first Frederick, then John, worked in those years, even though so much has changed since. Not least, we learnt that we had both utterly misunderstood what the job of “dock gatekeeper” was. It was also great to see Liverpool looking so much livelier than I remember it a decade or so ago, as well as seeing sunshine.

Dear Mike,
Thank you for the wonderful information you unearthed about the Molletts.I had no idea what to expect from the brief you were given and the tour certainly delivered everything I'd hoped for and more. We all enjoyed it hugely.
Marian Mollett

How on earth can I thank you for all the info you have sent to me. It is my wife's family history and you reduced her to tears reading all the facts. She can only recall her grandmother telling her that her grandad was awarded the Crois de Guerre for carrying a Belgian officer on his back whilst under gun fire. Elisa was informed by the war office that George had been missing in action and it wasn't until 6 months later that she heard again that he had been found in a Belgian hospital being nursed by Nuns. Thanks once again for all your help.

Dear Mike
Thank you so much for all that information. It explains a lot and I must admit to shedding a tear or two when I read William's story. It has made me more even more determined to visit Etaples!
