Bio and Links
I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I did, once, venture across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.

Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

Hi Iain

I wondered if it would be OK with you if I used your images of the grave on my (non-commercial) family history blog to write about Christina and her husband?

Regards
Anne

Hi Iain,

Good Luck in your endeavors.

Thank you for taking the photo of my great grandfathers head stone. I remember visiting his grave when I was 6 years old with my mother father sister nan and grampa (Ellis son) I'm now 31 and it still looks like exactly how I remember it. I hope to return back there sometime this year to pay my respects once again. I have so many photos of the cemetery that i would be happy to upload. Kind regards Lucy

RE: Anthony Handkinson
Here is what I could find at the moment;

Anthony Handkinson is listed on the CWGC website, but under "Greece", not Phaleron War Cemetery (I have no idea why). The only personal information listed states that he was the son of Richard Handkinson.

"Tony" and a New Zealand soldier named John "Jack" Stuart (memorial #56553524) where taken prisoner in Greece on 28 July 1942. Both of them where executed at Averoff Prison in Athens on 7 February 1943.

The latter information is listed on the Special Forces Roll of Honour website.

How thrilling to see you again!
My oh my....you do sound as if you were in an area where you were cold cold cold!

Do you ever get down to Wedmore or Worcester area? Toddington Manor over in Gloucestershire is where my Viscount Robert Tracey was as well...have seen that spelling as Tracy/Tracey.

Always lovely seeing you here!
