And thank you for letting us know. It's always nice to hear the end of the story, especially when successful.

Contact the cemetery itself and ask for a photo?

The Commonwealth War Graves site not only gives details of the grave site but has photos of the individual grave markers. I have photos of the grave markers of uncles in Normandy and Kenya. It is a shame the Americans don't offer this facility. This is not a criticism but a suggestion that people who would find this useful might like to point out to their government that it would undoubtedly be a worthwhile idea.

You may be able to get a photo from http://twgpp.org/ or http://www.britishwargraves.co.uk/index.htm although these are British or you could possibly Google for an American equivalent .

Good luck, hope you find someone. Perhaps worth posting on Angloinfo Normandy too ?

Thanks Penny but I have all the details, I just need someone to kindly take a photo of the marker.  I just didn't want to post the details in an open forum so would forward the details on by PM or email.
