Happy New Year

About 13 months ago I was canvassing for Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party.

 During Which , In Todmorden ,I remember passing a graveyard and seeing this statue 

I thought i must come back later and photograph it. 

This week I did.

Los Ojos de Pancha

 

 

 


Veronica Fernandez Zimnoch lives in Argentina.She's a Lawyer in Buenos Aires  She's my Great Grand Niece.

Her Grandad, & my Uncle, was  Antonio Zimnoch (my namesake) . He was ten years younger than my Dad. They last saw each other in 1939 when my dad was conscripted into The Soviet Army ( later to desert and join the Free Polish Airforce  in UK.)

After the war, my uncle married an Italian lass and moved to Argentina.

Apart from the occasional letter , they never contacted each other.Although ,oddly , they died within weeks of each other in 1984.

I still keep in touch with Veronica via facebook.

Antonio Zimnoch : my namesake.
