Hello - Back in May 2013 I contacted @28th61st and obtained his permission to reuse his photos on http://www.ww1-yorkshires.org.uk which is dedicated to remembering something of the men who served or formerly served with the Regiment in WW1 and lost their lives. George Graham Hicking enlisted with the Regiment before transferring to the York and Lancaster Regt. I am hoping that you will allow us to reuse your photo of his family headstone. You will of course be acknowledged as the contributor and owner of the image. Kind regards
 
Hello B and thank you for allowing us to make use of your photo. I had put two and two together and assumed you were wife and husband! Great that you should both share a common interest in commemorating our brave servicemen.
Kind regards
