In memory of Pvt Ashton Moore



In March 2013, I wrote about the discovery of a memorial headstone for Pvt Ashton Moore in Gelert Cemetery, Haliburton, Ontario. Last week, the Minden Times published an article about a caring couple in France who now care for his final resting place in France.

This is a fascinating story, dug out by Donna Gagnon Pugh with real diligence. The connection to the past and the present is really interesting, with the WW1 grave being taken care of by a French couple, who lost their daughter to a recent airline crash. I hope to see more of these stories.
