This page is by no means complete. These are members of the unit whose names I have. If you have more information and would like to contribute please drop me a line. but_webmaster2.gif (2435 bytes)
When the memorial was built it was and still is my intention to have a book bearing the names of all those lost in the service of the OTU placed in one of the local churches.  I am a little closer to realising this task.
