Faces finally put to the lost souls of the Western Front...<br />
<br />
A dedicated couple have spent 10 years tracking down the family histories of some of the 72,000 British troops still 'missing' from the Somme.<br />
<br />
Ken and Pam Linge from Northumberland have spent 10 years researching the thousands of British soldiers who were lost during the ill-fated offensive of 1916, and have finally put faces to some of the names engraved in history.<br />
<br />
They have also revealed the fascinating stories and diverse backgrounds behind some of the men who are listed on Lutyen's famous Thiepval Memorial in France as having no known grave.<br />
<br />
Their work has resulted in a new book titled 'Missing But Not Forgotten' that documents 230 of these men.
