Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 18th August, 2018)
Photo: David Long (Sony SLT-A65V)
Great Grandma and Grandad, plus one uncle memorial on that shot.
Others behind, left and among the tall grasses far right.
The foreground trees are pretty but resemble a "park" job.
Have to travel down shortly to do my annual check.
Great photo, witchy is the wutchy?
Funny they've not built houses there, lots of space doing nothing. Can't see it bothering anyone.
Have you been up Rectory Lane, Standish lately Alan?
The Wutchy (sorry about the 'Witchy' headline - my pooter will think for itself!) is a brownfield site, too - so no worries about taking from the Green Belt....
Gary - I was there to take a pic of a grave bearing the name of a WW1 casualty - Donald Mather. His family may have visited his battlefield grave because the headstone is in the form of one of the types of wooden crosses erected over the graves of men buried in the field where they fell. Long since replaced by the standard War Graves' headstone. I've not seen a headstone similar to this anywhere else.
For some strange reason the website and guidebook for St Elizabeth's reckon he's actually buried there - but the War Graves Commission are quite sure he's buried in Belgium.
The Wutchy is the tree covered hill at the back.
David - certain he's in Belgium; none were brought back, at least none were mentioned in my family. There was an internal memorial within the church, including Donald Mather's name.There's a framed picture of it somewhere in my family collection.
Rev. David Long. I have a very special request. Please call me at firstname.lastname@example.org Urgent.
