Good evening everyone,

Well I lost three days to the weather over the weekend and then made up for it yesterday! I need to say thank you to Andy and Allen Wedge for their help with getting Haslar Royal Navy cemetery completed, I never want a day like yesterday ever again! It was horrendously hard work and I paid for it in spadefulls last night... It was a help having Andy's small class 2 scooter to use, I hate to think what sort of state I would be in without it. As Andy mentioned in a post last night on Facebook, we met a lovely family from the Cayman Islands who were very generous, they had come to see a Royal Naval relatives grave.

Talking about the Caribbean, I found the grave of J Sparrow yesterday, a sailor, Joseph not Jack Gaspar has resulted in 3871 images, this is going to take a long time to go through, I still have St Anne's cemetery and Netley to do, once they are finished I can head to Tramper, I need new tyres on the trailer then it's Somerset until Christmas.
