    I’ve written a blog post on Thomas Renz, having come across his grave during Commonwealth War Graves Week (2021) when I photographed numerous CWGC headstones in Edinburgh’s Rosebank and Eastern Cemeteries.

    He’s on passersbyremember [dot] wordpress [dot] com This particular blog is for people who don’t fit in to any of my blogs for parish and regimental war memorials. There is a search facility, and entering Renz will find his post.
