  2. Thomas Charles Lamb was my grandfather, and Harry Alvin Lamb was my uncle who I never met. However, my wife and I did visit Harry’s grave in the Commonwealth War Cemetery in Cassino, Italy in 2019. Quite moving. We also visited the Polish and German war cemeteries there, and went up to the (rebuilt) Abbey.
