R N Briggs

Richard Nowell Briggs of Whalley died in 1945. 75th years later we were contacted by Ruud Scholten of Brunssum, Netherlands who kindly sent us some photographs of Brunssum War Cemetery, Limburg, Netherlands where Richard is buried. Richard's grave has been adopted by Edmond Ackermans for years. The main photograph of his headstone has been placed on the Remembrance page on the web site. The Briggs family are now dealing directly with the family who adopted Gunner Briggs/Grave.
