Harwell Commonwealth War Grave Cemetery

I only recently came across this after looking on Google earth. I'd been to the church and noticed no war graves then spotted the cemetery on the map GE shows a big cross which I immediately recognize as the Commonwealth War Grave  site. It was not long before I headed back for a look.

 View of the cross with three graves in front.

There are around 90 odd graves in this area

The airman were from different countries  and died a long way from their loved ones 

This one though it not and is near the entrance to the cemetery I think she may have been a local girl brought back and buried here by her family.

We Shall Remember Them
