Remembrance on Christmas Eve: Texel, Netherlands

This very simple, but extremely moving and quietly spectacular, ceremony took place at the Texel War Cemetery yesterday evening.

Leslie Laver’s grave is on the far-left of the plot.

The tribute from Leslie Laver’s mother, Jenny, reads:

Although you’ve gone, my boy,

I know that some day

We’ll meet again

In a world of gladness.

With many thanks to Jan Nieuwenhuis and Saskia Nieuwenhuis for the photographs.
