Poignant Souvenir of a Battlefield Pilgrimage

A poignant souvenir of a young widow's pilgrimage to the grave of her husband. There were a number of large scale organised pilgrimages to France and Flanders in 1922. Thomas Fenwick was 28 and the son of William Fenwick of Low Bradley Farm, Medomsley, Co. Durham. Pte Fenwick was the husband of Elizabeth Ann Fenwick (pictured below) of East Billingside, Leadgate, Co. Durham. The message on the wreath is very sad - 'In Loving and Affection Remembrance of my dear Husband'. Click twice on the image for a closer view.
