John Berston's grave

A photo of the grave of Gunner John E. Berston has been added to the South Ronaldsay section of the website.  It was taken by Mrs. Wilma Selvey, who now lives near Glasgow but was born in South Ronaldsay. She read John's biography in The Orcadian just before taking a trip to Poland, so added to her visits to Auschwitz and a salt mine a trip to John's grave in Krakow Racowicki Cemetery.  Wilma's father, Flying Officer James Brown of Flaws, survived the crash landing of his Halifax bomber in France during a sortie to the Ruhr in November 1944.
