HARTLEPOOL HEADLAND.

THE RAMP GAVE ACCESS TO THE BEACH.
I HAVE LIVED IN HARTLEPOOL ALL MY LIFE, BUT HAD NEVER BEEN ON THIS BEACH!

UP A SAND BANK AND WE GET TO SPION KOP CEMETERY.
I HAVE BEEN TO THE CEMETERY MANY TIMES BUT NOT VIA THE BEACH.


I DID SOME RESEARCH INTO CAPTAIN LAWRENCE A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO AND MADE CONTACT WITH HIS DESENDANTS WHO HAD CONTINUED THE MARITIME TRADITION.
THE LAST TWO LINES STATE
"AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE SEA."
