Sounds fantastic Peter, I do hope you can post up the pictures.
Robert Jones VC's grave is particularly poignant isn't it, given its position.

I believe there was a campaign to correct the disrespectful positioning of Robert Jones headstone. Does it still face away from the cemetry/ church Peter?

I do recall reading that "Phil Pearce" Great Grand son of Jones VC just wants his Great Grandfather left in peace. Totally agree with him. Salute

It would be nice if Peter Winner's campaign to have the headstone turned towards the church were to succeed.
Robert Jones is hero and an iconic soldier and he was also a victim of PTSD, as Winner is. Jones was wronged by the church on the occasion of his death.
Never too late to right a wrong.
Perhaps the publicity could put the spot light on this horrible condition, which is still not properly recognised or dealt with in all quarters.
Steady progress has been made, but could do a lot better.

Look at the date of the publication. 25-04-2010 I think he spoke to the familey and they was happy to leave this as they are. At the end of the day, there are thousands of us who know the truth and respect the families wishes.. Salute
