Burial at Hinaidi (Ma'Asker Al Raschid) RAF Cemetery 1925

Peter Burlton of the Habbaniya RAF Association sent me a photograph of a burial ceremony carried out in 1925 at the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery. The grave and headstone of LAC John Bliss from the No 6 Armoured Car Company is marked with two crosses (location Plot 3 Row H Grave 7) and from the location and number of men attending the burial ceremony, the grave (Plot 3 Row I Grave 14) is most likely that of Squadron Leader Jasper Cruikshank, OBE, Officer Commanding No 6 Armoured Car Company (RAF), who died of Typhoid at Hinaidi on the 20th February 1925
