    I contribute to a website which is dedicated to recording something of the men of The Yorkshire Regiment who fought in the First World War. One such man, Pte. Tosti Langsford, is commemorated on the Calstock War Memorial. I was wondering if you would kindly allow your photographs to be reused. I would, of course, ensure that ownership is credited and a link provided to your site.

    You are more than welcome, Richard. Ownership and link appreciated. Glad you found my site, and glad I can be of help.

  3. Magicfingers says:

    Oh, and I have tweaked the page a tiny bit…it works better now.

  4. Many thanks for allowing use of the photos. A page for Calstock is now up on the Yorkshire Regiment Remembrance website, –
    with the one Yorks soldier whose name is found on the Calstock Memorial.

    By the way Edward, I also have two photos that include the headstones of Privates Howlett & Bowden, who are buried in Brookwood Cemetery and, according to a list I found on your site, it appears you don’t have photos of them. Lmk if you want copies.

    • I would be delighted to receive photos of Howlett & Barden in Brookwood Cemetery.
      Also, I have corrected the County for Calstock, – sorry, I should have checked my maps before I ascribed it to Wiltshire. Maybe it’s because I’d just recently been placing for Wiltshire material on the website that I made this “deliberate mistake”!

  6. Magicfingers says:

    Ah, and Calstock is in Cornwall, I promise you, not Wiltshire.

    Dear Magicfingers; would you be kind enough to contact me regarding some research I am doing about Private Tosti Langsford? I need some expert local knowledge for a WW1 piece for ITV. oliver DOT crocker AT itv DOT com.

    Many thanks! Oliver
