It was heart wrenching to see these paintings, it certainly made it real and highlighted how young these men were.
Each loss of life represented by a stone around the cart.
The library also have a display, which makes for some interesting reading.
There is also a wonderful display in the Chemist window to honour and to remember this disaster.
The most striking is the memorial that has now been built . A slate engraving and stone cairn at Carn Gardens.
The stone cairn included stones to represent each man lost and were collected from the home villages of each of the 201 sailors lost.
What a beautiful place to sit and remember the bravery and heroism of these young men.
My daughter treated us to a plant depicting the talking tree from Efteling on our recent trip, it survived two ferry trips and the long drive home.
My plan for today is to now make a start on the my Christmas scrapbook before some of the little details are forgotten. A walk also seems a possibility as the sun is shining down and enticing us outside. What have you got planned?
As always I thank you for your visit to my humble blog and for your uplifting comments.
