The photographs below are of tributes attached to memorial benches, in Hove and St. Annes.


I recently found myself thinking of Joan Vollmer and how, if I had the money, I'd love to commission a bench in Hove looking out at the channel, in memory of 'Bill and Joan'.  I'd give them both long lives on the little memorial plaque, mentioning their happy marriage and long hours spent looking out to sea together.


It's not what happened, but it's a happier ending to the story.
