    As it was a sunny and warm day, I went to visit his grave in Ashcott, Somerset, and took a photo of it.

    That sounds nice weather day. Lot of rain here lately. Nice to get out after very very long over year lockdown and restrictions. I haven't even chance go out properly yet. Soon hopefully.

    I decided to order his death certificate and it has just turned up. It says he became a secondary school teacher after he left the navy. He died from dementia, what a shame.
