Tower Hill, etc

I actually made use of "Black Friday" weekend this time .... having taken thousands of photos over the years, my friend Christine suggested that I did what she does ... print a few photos of each trip, celebration, so there are a few per year, with the rest still in cyberland. So managed to get quite a few photos printed at half price. So that will be a task at some point to get them in albums.

As I am off work still this week, I am managing to get a few photos of my London trip posted.

This first set is of around the Tower Hill area. I went to The Tower a couple of years back, but this time I was on my way to see HMS Belfast (photos in next set)

The Merchant Navy Memorial - one of my great Uncles was in the MN, and survived the war, despite being sunk twice.
