Kilmory Churchyard

We visited Kilmory churchyard this afternoon. The church itself is long gone, though the outlines of its structure are clearly visible within the walled enclosure, and many of the gravestones are broken or falling, their inscriptions increasingly difficult to read.

But two are still very well maintained, and they are the ones The Diary stands beside each time we go there. They mark the graves of two Merchant Navy seamen washed up on the shores of Ardnamurchan, both in the latter days of 1940.
