    Thank you for this. Little by little the remaining family have been able to join some of the dots together.
    Looking at Antiques Roadshow last Sunday they were asking for any stories people may may have to commenerate the Centenury of WW1, and I was thinking of mentioning the three Desaleux brother.
    Isnt there some relation to the film Saving Private Ryan? when the last surving brother was rescued. Just a thought.
    Thank you once again.
