These six were ones I couldn't find from a list I printed off from CWGC.

It's obviously been a while since I posted all these photos, but if I subsequently found three out of six, and forgot to delete them from that list, I'd be happy to update/edit it to bring it up to date.

I did at one point sneak over the fence and might have got some, but we'll not go into that wee adventure!! Wink
