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.
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.
