I would like to thank you for inviting BBC South to join the Thame Remembers trip to France and Belgium. It is clear that your team have a very good understanding of how we work so many thanks for being so welcoming, accommodating and well organised. From the start we wanted to convey the passion, love and emotion that the Thame Remembers project brings out, and the result on air was everything hoped for. I had particularly wanted to make viewers stop and think, even for a brief moment, about the sacrifice that each one of those men made. I hope that the reaction in the office was repeated in homes across the region. Thame Remembers is a tremendous project and I am very proud that we were able to highlight it on BBC South Today. Please do keep in touch with us about future stories and plans as we would like to continue to tell our audience about the project and its progress.

|Firstly, I would like to say thank you to the organisers of ‘Thame Remembers’ for inviting me and my camera to accompany the trip to France and Belgium. It was an experience of a lifetime. Not just in terms of my career as a journalist, but personally. There were moments when the sun was setting and the group was stood in silence that I will remember forever. This project is ambitious and important. As one person said, all towns should do this. I now know more about the soldiers who died for Thame than I do about my own great-grandfather. Something I now want to correct. I want to say a special thank you to Richard Bowdrey and Ron Roberts for allowing me to ask some very personal questions, and for allowing all of us to see just how much this really mattered to them. Thank you Mike and Dave for telling the story of the project so eloquently and accommodating all the requests I had! I look forward to filming the next stages of the journey. I would also like to thank all of you who came on the trip for being so welcoming, even Gill! But seriously, you were a lovely group of people to meet. I thought I would end this message by just saying, if any of you ever want to get in touch, it would be lovely to hear from you! It’s also handy to hang on to my email in case you ever need the services of a BBC journalist! email@example.com. See you in Thame!|
