Notes

Lays wreath at Karl Marx's Grave and Salutes.
PLEASE NOTE: Gagarin's visit to Highgate Cemetary was unscheduled and therefore no records of the exact time have yet been found. Through newspaper articles and 50 year old memories of the day. 17:30 seems the most likely time for his visit.
I will revise this conclusion as and when more information is available to me.
