Does anyone have any photos of the military graves in this cemetery? According to CWGC there should be 31.

I am looking for one for Eng Lt Peter Brown who was lost on 06/10/1918 from HMS Otranto.

If anyone has one I would love a copy if it is possible.

Thank you in advance.

I've got a contact in Islay who will provide pics in the very near future. Bear with me.

A booklet on the Otranto disaster was published at the time. I've linked below to two images from that. I hope to get images of the wargraves in the next few days.
