Between January 2010 and December 2016 images covering c30,000+ graves and names-on-memorials have already been distributed – for FREE – to family members, groups, universities and governments’ departments. The present database covers c50,000+ individual images of graves and c160,000+ images of names-on-memorials (4 memorials alone – in Myanmar, Singapore South Korea and the Philippines – account for c115,000+ names).
A total of 22 images are included in this page.The first 4 demonstrate the most popular type of images requested over the last 7 years and the remaining 18 (one from each country visited to-date) are
