  • Laying a poppy from Belgium for Osborne 'Peter' Keedwell. I have visited his grave (and that of his fellow crewmembers Leslie Berridge and Leonard Merritt) at Voroux-Goreux, Belgium, a second time, a week ago. I live some 30 km/18 miles away. As can clearly be seen at photographs online, we remember him. We remember them all. We will never forget.
