Many readers will remember the Diary entries about Trooper Norman King of the Warwickshire Yeomanry whose body was washed ashore on West Ardnamurchan in 1940 (most recent here). He was a victim of the sinking of the Arandorra Star which was carrying, amongst others, German prisoners of war and their guards to Canada.
Beryl King, the wife of Norman's brother, Douglas, has contacted the Diary and kindly given permission for two photographs to be published
The second, showing Douglas King, Norman's brother, was taken in Aleppo, Syria, in June 1943. Douglas was also in the Warwickshire Yeomanry.
Beryl says, "Douglas and I and our two sons have visited Kilchoan many times and fell in love with the area so it seemed only natural that when Douglas passed away he should be laid to rest with his brother.
Ian Pittendraugh interred Douglas ashes just before he went to New Zealand.
"I am unfortunately now unable to make the journey to see them (advanced years!!) but I think about them every day."
Many thanks to Beryl King for allowing the Diary to publish these pictures.
