  • Although not related, we visited Souda Bay Cemetery in Crete during 2015. We left a small stone on the headstone of Bartholomew Burke, just to recognise that someone had been to visit and remember him. We are going back to Crete this year and will do the same. If anyone should see this message, please get in touch, would just like you to know that he is not forgotten. Geoff Burke, Derby, England,
