Last weekend I visited Binstead Village in Hampshire (UK) to pay my respects at the Graveside of
1st Viscount Bernard Law Montgomery of Alamein. KG GCB DSO Field Marshall.
I took my camera along to share the pictures with the forum. Binstead is a small historic Village with many ancient houses. Montgomery lived out the remainder of his life in Froyle mill near the village.
I include a few good pictures of the man, the church, his grave and the only WW2 war grave in the cemetery for JA Baynton REME this is near to Monty's.
If you ever have the chance to visit its a nice spot with a good view of Hampshire rolling hills and downland.
From memory one of the poppy wreaths is from the (NVA) Normandy Veterans Association but sadly I can't remember the other.
