Whilst flicking through sections of the BBC TV red button I came across a story about the British & Irish Lions squad (RU) down under who have paid their respects at the grave of 1880s Lions stalwart Bob Seddon who was tragically drowned in a boating accident during the first RU Lions tour to Australasia in 1888. He was the tourists' captain, and was interred in Newcastle, New South Wales (It says in 'Campbell's Cemetery', but I can't trace it, can you? - I think I've found it. It's called Campells Hill Cemetery, which is on South Street, Telarah in Maitland, NSW, a few miles inland from the port of Newcastle, 100 miles up the coast from Sydney. See link below again.
R.I.P Bob, and all other great (and not-so great) Lions down the ages.
