Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery Timeline (1921 to Now)

The table below gives a detailed timeline of the Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery (formerly the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery), from the date of the first burial until August 2023. The information regarding the maintenance of the cemetery, from 1937 to 1974 inclusive, was taken from the Commonwealth War Graves Annual Reports, showing that for a total of 65 years, no work at all was carried out at Ma'Asker. Another interesting statement by the CWGC in its 23rd Annual report (for the year 1941/1942) is that WW2 burials were carried out at Hinaidi during that period. If this is correct, then two issues need to be clarified, viz:


a) Should the Ma'Asker/Hinaidi cemetery be regarded as a World War cemetery?

b) Where are the graves for the burials in 1941/1942?
