  • In memory of my great uncle Eric Norman Tarrant, buried at the Foncquevillers Military Cemetery (18 km south-west of Arras, France). Eric died from wounds received in battle in the Pas de Calais area. This note commemorates 100 years since his death on 3 August 1918. Eric's brother Leonard Terrill Tarrant (my grandfather) also fought in this area of France, but survived his wounds and returned to his life in New Zealand.

  • My husband and I visited the grave site of my Great Uncle Eric Norman Tarrant on 12 September 2015. The Foncquevillers cemetery is beautifully maintained and quiet, adjacent to a farm. We photographed Eric's grave and those of the other 11 New Zealand soldiers buried near him. I am happy to make those photographs available to relatives of these soldiers should they request these photos. The cemetery, and especially the site of Eric's grave was a picture of roses in flower, and a real tribute to those who support and tend this cemetery.
