Remembrance Day Ceremony 2021 at Al Rasheed Cemetery

For the first time in decades, a Remembrance Day service was held on-site at the Al Rasheed cemetery (originally named the Hinaidi RAF Cemetery and later changed to the Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery) on the 11th November 2021, with wreaths laid by Air Marshall Martin Sampson CDE DSO (the current DSAME) and Brigadier Adam McRae MBE (British Defence Attache to Iraq) on behalf of No 1 Squadron and No 6 Squadron respectively. Wreaths for the six other Royal Air Force squadrons with men buried at Hinaidi were later laid at the Remembrance Service carried out at the British Embassy.
