Romsey Abbey, Hants, where he is buried. One of my favorite Abbeys. Very intimate and serene.


“Broadlands” the family Country House in Romsey, Hants. Used to visit it often. One of my adoptive mother’s favorite destinations in England.



This was CLOSE TO HOME in many respects. Romsey, Hants. — where he would be buried and the location of their Country Home — was but 4 miles from where I used to work at IBM.

I also liked and respected Mountbatten. He was quite the guy and a good one at that.

Suffice to say I was NOT a fan of the IRA. This was a sad day.
