India –Kirkee & Madras Memorials
Israel - Haifa; Ramleh

Articles and photographs are very welcome for the next edition of Emma Gee. The magazine is only as good as members make it by sending in interesting copy.

Please help Judith by ensuring that you use Times New Roman 10 point, no indents, 'no prettying up' please. Ensure article and photograph file names link and make sense to others, not just you, e.g. name files '1234 Pt Fred Bloggs'. Making file names such as 'Dad' or 'Grandad in Mespot' will mean absolutely nothing to me if they become detached from your email, waste hours of time and may mean they will not be included!! Thank you for your help.

Please remember that events require a lot of time and effort to arrange and they are arranged for you to enjoy, do make the effort to attend and make a quick note in your diary so you don't forget. Meet lovely people and visit interesting places.

***

The MGC/OCA has a Facebook page, take a look, lots of interesting comments, photos etc there.

Have a chat, get others to join up, communicate.

I regret that I do not accept friends from membership of the OCA on my personal facebook page. This isn't very interesting for starters!! It contains family photos etc which won't be of much interest to anyone else. But do join the MGC/OCA facebook page.
