If you have a relative or research subject who served in the 4th CMR, then, after reading the following important website policy notes, please do drop me (Ian) a line via email 4cmr.com.
Please note that for any contacts who are aged 16 or under, and who wish to be mentioned on the In Memoriam page, a separate email contact from a parent or guardian, granting 4cmr.com permission to include that person's name on the website, will be required. As this site is in the public domain, the protection of minors is of prime concern to all.
Also note that contact details are NOT divulged in any way, or passed on to 3rd parties. Any contact sought with named individuals posted on this site will be brokered in the first instance by 4cmr.com to protect rights of privacy. However, please do bear in mind that replies from sought individuals cannot be guaranteed.
Word of warning - the domain provider has a BoxTrapper spam filter in place. When you write to me, it is remotely possible that certain symbols (such as $ or £) or high risk keywords may set off the spam filter and require you to prove you are a real human being and not an automatic spam generator. Please simply return the automatic message that is sent to you on such occasions and your original email will be delivered. Your patience and understanding is much appreciated and will ensure your important email gets through to me rather than be binned, as happens to literally hundreds of spam emails to each and every .com email address every day. Before the BoxTrapper was put in place I was receiving up to 500 spam emails every day. As such any layer put in place to stop this absurdity is a rarely inconvenient but welcome necessity.
Submit a biography / article / image
I would be interested in receiving biographies (with accompanying images if at all possible - but not a requirement) which will then be linked from the soldier's listing on the In Memoriam page. Put some words together (10 to 2,500), along with any images (attached to the email rather than embedded in the biography please), send them to me using the above email address and I'd be honoured to create a page dedicated to your relative or research subject.
Take a look at some of the existing stories via the In Memoriam page for some ideas on what to include. It really isn't too difficult (if I can do it, you can too), and it doesn't have to be an in-depth piece. If you need help refining a biography, I will be glad to assist. Whilst the site editor's decision is final on posted material, your story will be gratefully received and will be of immense value and interest to the 4th CMR and wider WW1 communities.
In trusting that visitors will respect the sources of the material, rights to it remain with this site or the originator where stated (see below).
There is no charge for inclusion on the In Memoriam page or for dedicated webpages. This is a non-profit, personally motivated project, serving to remember those men of the 4th CMR who stepped forward for us in WW1.
Fair use policy / Copyright / Use of material
Biographies, articles and images on this website are copyright 4cmr.com and / or the originator (where stated). In the first instance please do not hesitate to contact me for permission to use any material presented on this site. I will be happy to help as much as I can.
Many thanks for your courtesy, Ian
