I have been researching my family tree and found my 2nd Great uncle Joseph Collier 9662 Who sighed up to the Lancashire Fusiliers 1st Battalion in Bury. I canít find his war records/signing up records but have traced his burial at Lancashire Landing Cemetery, Helles, Gallipoli.I also have the docs from his sister Betsy Collier as what to say on his head stone. I also have other docs to confirm that Joseph is indeed my 2nd great uncle. I am now doing a write up for my Uncle and was just wondering if all the info I have collected can go on your web page please? He was also awarded the Victory, British and Star Medals. For the star medal it says 15 Star? I donít know what that means. My with up up is a long one as I talk about Joseph and the time line of events and added in the letter from a soldier from your web site and a time line of events.
This is a paragraph from my right up.

Time line of events that lead to Joseph Colliers Death. A man that will always be a hero in my eyes and will always have my respect and gratitude for the live I have today thanks to the sacrifice and suffering he endured in the Great War, the same is said to all the fallen men & survivors who spend their lives re living the hell that was the Great War.
Uncle Joseph Iím proud, honoured & grateful that you not only fought for your family but for the future generations of your family.

Thank you for your time and can I say a wonderful websit
Kind Regards
Anita

I have e mail Anita to say we would be happy to put it all on site
