Final (?) Grave Allocation at Hinaidi RAF Cemetery
October 10, 2019
After a lot of double-checking and discussions with Peter Burlton of the Habbaniya RAF Association, the attached diagram with grave usage numbered chronologically, here is the most accurate map of the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery based on all the information to hand. It is possible that Row 1 and Row 2 might be the other way around, the order of Rows (A, B C etc) might be Left-to-Right instead of Right-to-Left and/or the Grave numbers actually
run from 14 to 1 instead of 1 to 14 but these assumptions can only be confirmed by the CWGC or the AHB should they still have the original design plans of the cemetery (unlikely as many of the records have been lost or destroyed in the intervening years).
