        • The Bosworth Battlefield is only a few miles from where I live, so I was able to watch the ‘cortege’ drive by on the day that the reburial ceremonies began. I also visited Leicester Cathedral during the ‘lying in state’ and took some photos, one of which was used by the Richard III Society as the cover picture for their commemorative brochure. It was quite an occasion!
