This photograph was taken in the Churchyard at Troitsa, location of the RAF Dvina River Seaplanes Flight during summer 1919.

 

HANSFORD was KIA when HMS Sword Dance was mined and sunk on the Dvina, 24 June 1991.

 

[FITZHERBERT-]BROCKHOLES, SEXTON, CHEESEBOROUGH and SCUDDER were killed attempting to defuse an enemy seamine, 02 July 1919. The Reds often floated seamines down the Dvina towards the British anchorage and seaplane base.

 

WARREN, DENNISON, BUSS, WEBB, ALEXANDER, EELS and NELSON were KIA when HMS Fandango was mined and sunk on the Dvina, 03 July 1919.

 

See my book for more info.

От кладбища в Троице остались только следы могил. Они существуют.

Могила, показанная на фотографии, находится во втором от колокольни ряду.

Thank you:

From the cemetery in Trinity there were only traces of graves. They exist.
The grave shown in the photo is in the second row from the bell tower.

Thank you for this additional information and the recent photo of Trinity Church.

 

Presumably, the memorial has been lost.

Марк! Мемориал утрачен. Могилы остались не нарушенными. The memorial is lost. The graves remained undisturbed.

На месте дерева слева стояла колокольня. Лиственница справа была уже в 1919 году и сохранилась до наших дней. On place tree of from left teetered bell tower. The larch on the right was already in 1919 and has survived to the present day.

Идентичные виды 1919 года к моим фотографиям — с той же точки фотосъемки. Identical views of 1919 to my photos — from the same point of photography.
