    I did take Josef Ocelka's grave photo, but it's among several hundred RAF I still have to post on the Forum.

    Here it is and the full details from CWGC. Someone had left a coin on the headstone. Is this a Czech custom?

    Not a usual Czech custom, but have seen similar in connection with Jewish headstones or Jewish visitors to a headstone.

    I've looked at all the photos of the other Czech Headstones I took at Brookwood and there were none on any others (Not that they get many visitors). I've only seen stones on Jewish Headstones.
