hello kayes, some time ago, you were kind enough to go to a grave of a british soldier,who served with the 1st green jackets, in minden barracks,back in 1962/1965. his name surname was "BEER".you took photo's of the grave and posted them on penang talk. as my wife and i,are coming to penang in jan 2011,we would very much like to visit the grave,to pay our respects. the question is, which cemetery is the grave in?? i have tried to e-mail his family,to find out, but there has been no reply.so i am hoping you can help me{again} many thanks. regards maurice hillier.

hi Maurice, the grave is at the Western Road Christian Cemetery. Western Road is now called Jalan Utama. The cemetery is directly opposite the Freemasons' building painted in white and blue. The gravestone is at the border between the English and Chinese sections of the cemetery and is closer to the river.
