A couple of recent articles relating to Patrick Leigh Fermor, both of which mention Bruce and his famous resting place in the hills above Kardamyli, near Leigh Fermor's home.

Kevin Rushby goes travelling in search of them both in the Guardian.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal goes more in-depth, looking back in detail at Leigh Fermor's life. (There's also a nice slideshow, with interior and exterior shots of his beautiful house, now bequeathed to the Benaki Museum).
