Gibraltar North Front Cemetery 2

Here are three more views of Gibraltar's North Front Cemetery. The markings on the slides indicate my visit for 1991. Looking through more of the slides revealed I had taken a photograph looking down from the Rock and got a colleague to photography me standing among the graves. Note how close the cemetery is to the runway of Gibraltar Airport. I recall shooting one roll of colour transparency film and another of black and white. If I went there, today, with a camera equipped with a 16GB memory car, I would take hundreds of images - a great advance in technology, sadly unavailable to me at the time of my visit!

Boy that is close. Agree on the advance in technology, before you had to pick your shots now it's when do you stop.

Did you know that there is a civilian VC winner buried there? One of only a few civilians ever to win it!

Thank you! Thomas Henry Kavanagh was his name, I believe.
