Just a quick one, PM's only "leave" the out box once the recipient has read it ;)

In other words you can tell if the other person has received it by the fact it is no longer in the outbox :D

The elliptical war memorial at Notre Dame de Lorette, in Ablain-Saint-Nazaire is engraved with the name J R McKernan (my grand-uncle) amongst the names of almost 580,000 men who died in northern France during the First World War.

We also visited his grave in Bois Carre Cemetry, between Hulluch and Vermelles, near Lens, on 29th April 2016, the 100th anniversary of his death.
