Richmond Dix Gerrard
My Great Uncle John Ledgerwood, Stalag 18A's Kiwi Padre, is the person standing by Richmond's grave in one of these photos and is likely to have officiated at his burial. I have this original photograph and visited the exact spot he was initially buried in Wolfsberg cemetery. I visited his final resting place in Klagenfurt War cemetery in Austria in 2017 and laid a poppy on his grave. I'm researching my Great Uncle's war life currently.

Every year I march on ANZAC Day in rememberence for the fallen, the unnamed and those who still have not returned home. I march for my great uncle. Would any others of our family line like to join and does anyone have any stories to share of Richmond or John? I would really love to hear them & pass them onto my son who I also named after Richmond :)
