We were asked by The Royal British Legion to remember Vivian in their remembered forever campaign on the centenary of WW1. We were asked to make a donation as we have the same surname but as far as we know not related?? We have in the last week ( July 2014) visited his memorial at Messines Ridge Cemetery in Belgium and placed a cross in remembrance of Vivian. It would be nice to hear from any of his relatives and perhaps find out more about him and his journey through the war. Stephen and Sally Woods.
