This is George Myers, vice president of Greenough Street Independent Methodist Church, visiting the grave of his son Herbert at Bolsena War Cemetery, 1949. Herbert was killed in action in Italy. George has his bible in his hand so possibly held a little service for him. Also the large vase containing flowers was possibly brought from wigan on the trip.

This a very sad photo, a father visiting his son's grave in another country.
