In my home village Feda, near Flekkefjord, I found this grave from WW2, where the propeller blade makes a tribute to two brave pilots. There is also a sign at the gate announcing "Commonwealth War Graves".




I wonder if there are anybody out there who knows anything about the war heroes.
Also, I intend to return for more photographs in the summer. Any suggestions for improvement would be welcome.
Best regards
Terry

Thanks for the links, Barrie. I never thought of Googling the subject. And to be honest, I did not notice the coincidence of the date. But most appropriate, isn't it?
Best regards

The date thing is very spooky indeed

Dont really have any suggestions on how to photograph this, excpt perhaps a shorter Dof to blur out the busy background a bit more.
