19/02/2018. Very little happened on this blog since the year started, only minor additions and the usual 3 ships commemoration.
02/01/2019. Created new 2019 index page. shuffled things downwards, and added first post for the year. The loss of HMY Iolaire to show up on 01/01/2019. Investigated block editor but it has so many bugs that it is almost unusable. This thing is going to cause problems I can feel it in my bones. However if classic editor remains then it will not be problematic, but if only the block editor remains then I am quitting the blog completely.

The collection of gravestone photographs has now become so large that it is more convenient for it to have a web site of its own. This has, therefore, been done and the gravestones will now be found at http://www.graves-at-eggsa.
If you have stored links to graves or cemeteries, these will be easy to bring into line with with new web site location. So all that needs doing is to replace the “eggsa.org” in the old link with “graves-at-eggsa.org” to form the new link. Updated links on 2010, 2011 and 2012 index pages.
