I took this photograph a long time ago at the Maddingly American War Cemetery just outside Cambridge hence camera details are non-existant.
This is a very poignant place to visit because within are the graves of 3,812 American service personnel who lost their lives in World War 2 and on the Tablets of the Missing wall behind the monument are a further 5,127 names of those with no known grave.
With Armistice Day just a few weeks away it feels right that we should think of these matters from time to time, particularly with Britains involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hey guess what, on Tuesday evening I won the third of 2008's league competitions in my Camera Club with a print of Manx Racer that you saw on 26th.May this year which looks like this http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Manx_Racer_/. I rather gather the judge is/was a racing fan as he seemed to know quite a bit about the sport, anyway, beggers can't be choosers can they!
