Donovan Brown Torrance

This story and photos are shared by the Trust with kind permission from Barbara Robertson, niece of Donovan Brown Torrance

In memory of my uncle, Donovan Brown Torrance who was killed by a mortar. Here is a picture of the his grave site in Secqueville-En-Bessin War Cemetery showing the original simple cross.

And here is a picture taken in the mid 1980's of my parents, Victor and Jean Walden (née Torrance), by the newer grave marker.

We also have a photo of him and his medals.
