Finistere, France. We are a Franco-British family and have been living and working in Brittany for almost 20 years. We live in Loctudy, a fishing port in the South of Finistere and have two boys, Kevin and Liam. My wife Cathy is from the region. I am a teacher in a local high school and our hobbies include hiking and photography. We feel quite proud to be part of this project as both our families were involved in the last war. Cathy's grandfather was taken prisoner in the Ardennes in June 1940 and my own father landed in Normandy in June 1944. With all this personal history, it is hardly surprising that whenever we see the CWGC plaque on a cemetery wall, we always stop to have a look. Although we don't have a high number of war graves in Finist&269;re - about 300 in all - they are scattered all over the county as the majority of them are of RAF crew and include not only British but also many Commonwealth casualties. Being part of this project is our small way of thanking each of them for their sacrifice.
