      Shirley,

      Thanks for this. I looked up a bunch of the men listed on
      the monument in SPA and most seem to be listed. The actual
      page gives the birth and death dates. Many of entries list the
      father's name also. Lists whether they died from wounds (ferite)
      or from sickness (malattia) just like the monument lists them.

      Very valuable information as I've found that men who die young,
      without descedants, tend to be forgotten.

      ciao.
      Mark
