I am 41, married with two children and I work as a Human Resources manager for a public utilities company. I have been doing research on the 16th Infantry Bn. for more than 20 years. I am the godfather of the grave of an American soldier Clifford Kennedy, Sergeant in the Infrantry Bn., who rests at Bony in Aisnes. I have walked in the CWGC War Grave sites in the Normandy, Nord, and Pas-de-Calais regions. I only understood the sacrifices of the British troops during the battle of Arras in 1917, a little while ago. Finally, since I have watched a film telling the story of the Argyll & Sutherlands POW of the Japanese, I am interested in this unit.
