Wickens update

This link is to the story about Alfred Wickens whose BWM was recently returned. In summary the medal was in the possession of recently commissioned Captain Leon Upton and returned to Mark, a relative of Alfred. All this occurred in the UK.
Leon and Mark meet up and the the medal was handed to over. Mark has taken the next step and visited Alfred's grave. These photos are of Marks visit. He tells me that the workmen who were doing some repairs moved their tools to tidy up the sit a bit. The last photo is one that I took last week of Alfred's name in the commemorative cloisters of the Australian War Memorial.
