I am a French-Australian citizen living in SYDNEY-AUSTRALIA and born (1945)in GHISSIGNIES par le QUESNOY. I went to HIGH SCHOOL and played SOCCER in LE QUESNOY. On this picture, I have recognized Paul RAOULT (front row, sixth from the left) the actual MAYOR of LE QUESNOY. Apparently, LE QUESNOY is a sister city of CAMBRIDGE (Northern island of NZ). Please, could you confirm. I would like, eventually, to make a personal visit to New Zealand (CAMBRIDGE ?) for ANZAC DAY in 2012. I would be grateful, if you could put me in contact with the people organising the ANZAC DAY event ...
