Easy done, especially at this busy time of year

So many men to think about and make sure they are not forgotten.

Update:

After looking at the documents, Jim has very kindly offered to put John Laing Miller's case together and forward it to the MOD/CWGC.

I'm extremely grateful to everyone involved here. I'm sure Jack Miller's family simply weren't aware that he was not already fully commemorated, and without Adam Brown's initial query and photo and the input of everyone else in this thread, this might never have come to light.
