It is not often that those that are named on churchyard war memorials are buried within the same grounds. The reason being that service personnel are generally buried where they fall.

So I became curious when I spied a military headstone in a country churchyard not too far from where I live.

The memorial was for Scots Guard Captain R Gurowski, who died aged 30 on 2nd June 1940.

It would be interesting to learn his story.
