Slightly off topic as I obviously didn't take these myself, but thought it might be interesting to place them up here. Found this in a box listed "family photos" in my parents home after they passed. No-one spoke of him growing up so I didn't know anything about him.

Obviously from the marks in the cross, and the trees in the background, that the area was seeing action. Someone placed a can of something at his grave...



This is the second cemetery, which I am presuming they moved from the front line....



The final cemetery......



I tracked down the cemetery in Belgium and a fellow that lives close to it was nice enough to drive over to take a pic....

Nice time-line over the years.

Nothing great as far as photos go (old 4MP Canon A80 P&S), but it's a celebrity grave...

There's a Celebrity Graves thread you could put this in, too.

Especially as he may not even be in that grave. My understanding is that there is some dispute regarding whether he is interred there or at another location.

Can't believe I never noticed this thread until today. Probably because I do almost all my photo posting in the Takumar Club thread and seldom have time to properly wander through the rest of the forum as I should.

A pair of statues forming adjacent tombstones in a small cemetery in rural Azuma-mura in Gunma.:
