    Wrong figures folks- 89 were ID,d before the families visit late March, another 2 just before and their 2 name plaques came on the plane with the families and were prioritised off the flight and up to the cemetery about 30 mins before the families arrived - so that day there were 91.
    Then some weeks ago one more identified and now another so total now correct is 93 - but only TWO since the family visit day.

    No doubt come springtime those two name stones will be sent over and put into place along with any more that they succeed with ID.
