Bayeux Cemetery by Catherine Murphy

Bayeux Cemetery

this photograph was taken on June 6th 2017 at Bayeux Cemetery. It was late evening and there were few veterans and visitors in the Cemetery. Joe Hoadley, who was with me, was walking slowly between the headstones; he was casting a long shadow - a great simile to an historic occasion, site and commemoration.
Joe was with recce, Polar Bears and fought through Normandy, into France and Belgium where he was taken prisoner of war, surviving interrogation by an SS unit.
