Part 2

Last night I started doing a spot of research around the photos I had planned to publish - instead I have decided just to put the photos on - if you want to know where it was, or a very sad story about the circumstances, leave a comment and stock up on Kleenex........


  1. hello lynn! more wonderful photos...those top 2 are incredible. i can't imagine what it must have felt like to be in the presence of all those graves. such a beautiful image laced with so much sadness. i'd really like to know about the stag. it never ceases to amaze me just how perfectly the grounds are kept. my grandad's brother cyril (just 19 when he died in ww2) is buried in italy. my grandad was able to make a visit there about 10 years ago for the 1st time.

  2. I spent a week during my A-levels touring round lots of WWI sites in France and Belgium. It was one of the most interesting but upsetting weeks I've ever had.
    I'm sure I've been to the place with the Stag, I can't remember where it was though, possibly one of the places where a lot of Canadian troops were based.
    They are stunning photos though.

  3. You're right, it's so interesting but very moving - if I start reading the headstones I blub...

    The stag was in the Newfoundland Memorial Park - which is now part of Canada, but was British at the time of WW1.
    I'm beginning to sound like an anorak -
    Thanks for leaving a comment - it's so nice to know I am being read!
