Another Hinaidi Cemetery Photo

Peter Reichelt recently contacted me regarding a photograph he found in his father's collection - a snapshot taken in the nineteen-twenties, while the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery (later renamed the Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery) was still part of the Hinaidi Cantonment, under the protection of the Royal Air Force. The men standing behind Willian Bartlett's headstone are dressed in the uniform of the RAF Armoured Car Companies. On the right in the photograph is the headstone of Flying Officer Ellis Reid of 1 Squadron RAF and the headstone on the left is for Alexander Noble, a private in the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment. Peter has kindly permitted me to include the photograph in the Hinaidi section of my website.
