About 8 weeks ago I was contacted by a gentleman
called Don Rhodes who had just returned from Greece on a holiday,
the last time he went he drove past the Bralo British War Cemetery
and when he got home he did a large amount of research on the Cemetery
and found that there was a Fusilier buried their, Private Samual Pemberton
who died 07th Oct 1918.
