Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery Burial Record Plan

June 1, 2020

For those interested in knowing the original design and grave layout for the Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery (formerly known as the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery), here is a 1964 diagram that was produced by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission - Southern Region in 1964. It shows that the cemetery had two entrances as well as a small building just to the south of the western entrance, designated as "gardener's quarters". Apparently, the same man (an Iraqi local) tended the graves for many years.
