Berenice

Thank you for sharing these memorials with us. Perhaps you should apply to the relevant government department (there must be one?) for 'danger pay' on this particular mission.

Regards
Brett

I was very lucky as it started to hail while I was in the churchyard; 20 minutes later, while I was on the bus, it was torrential.
