This photo was kindly sent to us by Nick Ward, a guide for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission at Brookwood Military Cemetery, Pirbright, Surrey, England. Nick writes:
"Today was the centenary of the sad passing of Paul Parata and I spent a few moments at his graveside to pay my respects and take this photograph.It was a very typically wet English day but it just seemed to make the occasion even more poignant, he was not forgotten. Perhaps his family can be traced and a copy given to them?"
