Another Five Headstones Identified
In reviewing the hundreds of photographs taken at the Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery over the past 3+ years (the first batch being taken by staff of the British Embassy in Baghdad during the first visit to the abandoned CWGC cemetery in March 2020), I have been able to identify a further five headstones from fragment photographs, bringing the total number of identifiable headstones to 74.
