Two British Officers

Two British officers are interred at St Helena's. They died during the Revolutionary war in the battle of Gray'a hill. Their grave is decorated with two Union Jacks as part of the perpetual care provided. I'm afraid I caught a bit of lens flare in the upper left, but I though the image was still pretty powerful.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

I like the tight composition. The details are so clear, given the age of this stone.
