... the spirit of a young soldier asking me to take him home. I would have had it been possible, yet he would have been returning to a very different city to the one he left a century ago.

A final thing about the Manchester cemetery was that one of the graves belonged to a soldier with the surname Ogden. While definitely a long-shot, I wondered if it could be a relative of my brother-in-law, Philip.

The last grave I saw was on the day I left R(h)eims (Day 19?). It ...
