impressive monument for a grave
Lisl: This is just a memorial in the city where he was born (Bristol). There is another similar one in London. He is actually buried elsewhere in a village churchyard in Kent

I bet they called him Dapper.
Lisl: They might well have done, Chad - in more ways than one!
Nice detail in b/w. He has kind eyes.
Lisl: I think he was a caring person, especially about seamen going to sea in unsea-worthy boats
I remember learnig all about this gentleman and his invetntion. What a shame the local authority, or somebody, put that notice right next to it.
Lisl: Yes - no thought given to that
