Should anyone want to visit Laba and Tommy Tobin's graves it should be noted that their graves are not in the "SAS plot" presumably because that plot was started after Mirbat. Best way I can describe the location is to stand at the entrance to the SAS plot with the wall of remembrance on your left. These graves are then over to the right, 30 yards in about fifty yards from the SAS plot. As you enter the graveyard at the rear there is a noticeboard with a list of all the military graves in St. Martin's and their location and there are a great many "non-SAS personnel" buried there too.
Dave, you've been checking my spelling again!!! LOL

In fact I stand corrected. Twenty men died in the Sea King crash including personnel attached to the SAS.
See previous comments re the River Severn. The English Bridge is a masonry arch viaduct crossing the Severn. It is a 1926 rebuilding and widening of John Gwynn's design completed in 1774. A bridge is known to have stood at this spot since Norman times. Historically it was known as the "Stone Bridge" and it is a Grade II listed building. The United Reformed Church, the URC, was formed originally from the Union of The Congregational and Presbyterian Churches in England and Wales.

This is a red sandstone castle in Shrewsbury. It stands on a hill in a neck of the meander of the River Severn. It was built as a defensive fortification for the town. In 1138 King Stephen successfully besieged the castle held by William Fitzalan for the Empress Maud during the period known as The Anarchy. Little of the original structure remains. It is currently owned by Shropshire Council and managed by Shropshire Museums. Since 1985 it has housed the Shropshire Regimental Museum with artefacts from the Kings Shropshire Light Infantry. It contains the collections of the 53rd, the 85th, the KSLI to 1968, the local Militia, Rifle Volunteers and Territorials as well as those of other county regiments, the Shropshire Yeomanry, the Shropshire Artillery Volunteers and the Shropshire Royal Horse Artillery. the museum was attacked by those heroes of the IRA in 1992 resulting in it being closed for three years. Another "soft" target for these scumbags.
