Jo’s Monday Walk
This week a quick visit to the…
Gibraltar Bunker and
the Australian First Division Memorial.
As indicated this was a World War I bunker…
or at least the…
remains of it.
It is hard to imagine anyone wanting to go
down those stairs and into the
confined conditions of the bunker proper.
Nearby is the Australian First Division Memorial.
As usual I was bringing up the rear and missed
some of the information Phil was telling us.
In this shot it does appear that he has been on
an unsuccessful fishing trip.
Surrounding many of the Memorials we visited
was farm land which supported various crops
and all at various stage of growth.
Although this photo is not anywhere near in focus,
it was the first time we saw shrapnel
from two World Wars.
Though this appears to be gravel, there were
recognisable pieces of shells and other
metal objects easily found in these fields.
Phil handed me a lump of metal which was
probably part of a shell, with the words..
‘…here, this may have been fired
by your Grandfather…’
I was always concerned how I was
going to get this metal back home.
My concerns, however, were short lived.
Eurostar Security, at Lille, solved that problem.
That fact that I was traveling the morning of,
or after, the London Bridge attack,
may, or may not, have had
some bearing on the decision.
I usually do some Google research to help with some information
with my posts. My apologies this week, for not .
On Wednesday, after my GP used ‘aggressive’ and ‘cancer’ in one short
sentence, I had a chunk of my scalp removed.
Never knew one’s scalp moved so much every day…
especially when laughing.
Cannot wait to have the dressing removed.
When visiting the Specialist he also tapped the back of my head
and I have another appointment in mid December for an encore.
