Great stuff.

Too many wedding photographers and not enough funeral photographers if you ask me.

LOL

YOU could probably make a good composite on the topic!

I attempt a parallel here between the death of a civilization, and its cemeteries, including that of Keats, and of the Commowealth soldiers, who defended Italy:

BTW Funerary Art is definitely a Genre, well worth the attention, as in your case.

Cheers. That was a good read.

On second thoughts, there might be Australian soldiers buried there too. Mostly I remember that the bombers' crews were mixed and for many parts of the Commowealth.

I had some CA problems on top of the walls, so I must go back there again. Glad that you liked the tale

Am.
