RAF Graves at Mosul
A month ago I received an email from Bill Palmer of the 55 Squadron Association (55 Sqn has the most men buried of any RAF squadron at the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery - 25 graves) after he received a photograph showing two headstones, one for a 55 Squadron pilot and the other for an aircraftsman who was with 6 Squadron. With both men listed as being buried at Hinaidi, it was thought the photograph had been taken at Hinaidi before proper headstones had been erected. However, after lengthy investigation, I concluded that these graves were in fact at Mosul and that the bodies were later exhumed and re-buried at Hinaidi.
