Rheinberg British War Cemetery
We spent about an hour and a half placing flowers on each of the graves of the crew & also some others that friends had requested me to do so. The association Padre Tony Buckler kindly sent my mother a prayer to say over the graves.


Thursday we drove to Rheinberg Cemetery, We found it after a little re-direction. The sat-nav took us slightly in the wrong direction in trying to take us down a cycle way, though were in the correct area and after a few minutes found the correct turning. Rheinberg is such a beautiful cemetery so peaceful even with a main road only a few hundred yards away, we also took some flowers for all the 49’ers who are buried there from the 49 Sqd Association
