Great job Pete.
I can see a resemblance now to our Graham.
I look like my grandmother.

Hi Beardie - John Burns is my Great Great Uncle (Violet was my Great Grandmother). Our family have been researching the Burns family for a while, and we have been to visit John's grave at Foncquevilliers Cemetery. However, we are yet to find a photo of him. If you have any links that you think may be useful, I would be really grateful if you could pass them on. Thanks for your help!

Googled ideal weight for height
6 ft 7inches would be 220 lbs
5 ft 7inches would be 148 lbs
I live in my own little world. But it's ok....they know me here!
