More Photos of Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery
Kevin Godward kindly forwarded me photographs taken of the burial of his great uncle at the Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery (now known as Ma'Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery). AC1 David Arthur Henry Oldfield was serving in the RAF at the Aircraft Depot in Baghdad when he became ill (details unknown) and died on the 20th August 1930. The following photographs were taken at the funeral ceremony and later when the headstone was erected. I have included a photograph of David Oldfield in uniform, the photo taken in England.
