    Default Little Loo Loo

    Have just been for a walk and found my self in the grave yard of St Andrews church in Bebington, some of the grave stones are very old one is marked "one of Nelsons heroes" but the stone is badly eroded, another is marked "LIttle Loo Loo died at St Kilda near Melbourne, Victoria, December 20th 1853" I cant help but wonder who was Little Loo Loo, and how on earth they got their remains back from Austrailia !.

    Squiggs can you remember the name on the stone who was "one of Nelson's heroes"?

    No sorry ! the sandstone is really very badly eroded !, the only bit now you can read is on a separate round piece on the stone !, it is very sad that the name is not visiable...the one of Nersons heroes is around the circular piece.
