  • I am a grandson of David Wilfred Cuthill (who was a brother to Charles Stanley Cuthill), and a son of Ronald Charles Cuthill. Just want to say that , although you have lain buried in the barren dirt of faraway Egypt since 1942 (75 years ago this year), and I was born many years later, you and your sacrifice are not forgotten Charles Stanley.
