    Looking a bit mouldy around the edges again but as can be seen, someone from his family now visits so I'll leave it to them now. RIP Howard.

    Yes, definitely a few new ornaments than there were on the original visit. Good to see.

    Speaking with my boring-head on, they're supposed to have that bloom of patina. It's important that the age of the memorialisation is evident.
    So, the firing-squad formed a circle...

    Be who you are and say what you feel...
    Because those that matter, don't mind.
    And those that mind, don't matter!

    Not sure the CWGC would agree, they spent a fair bit doing 'em all up in France and Belgium for all the commemorations this year.

    Unfortuneately this one is directly underneath a tree and when it rains/snows it drips down and the muck splashes up which is why I used to scrub it every year. On others where it's worse you can hardly read any of the inscription so it's Hobson's choice.

    Go with what you feel is right and thank you.
    Spanners do it with their tools.

    True enough, I suppose.
