Livingstone’s Grave

The more eagle eyed viewer watching the King’s Coronation in London today may have spotted a Blantyre connection! The Royal processions and guests in Westminster Abbey directly passed over David Livingstone’s grave inside the Abbey.

Nearby is the memorial for Churchill and the well known tomb of the Unknown Warrior surrounded by flowers. When you think of all the renowned people in the Abbey, ‘our Davie’ has done well in the history of the nation!

With thanks to Rob Gordon for this information.
