A Bombers Moon and time for reflection. 671 not returning home


CWGC1

Having driven from near Seahouses,  heading home by the time we had reach Oxford I was ready for a walk around and a stretch of the legs. Many times on the A34 I recalled seeing signs for a Commonwealth War graves cemetery and thought this was a place for a look. The site contains 156 burials from WW1 the site of this cemetery is a result of the 3rd Southern General Hospital an Oxfordshire TA unit being located nearby. During WW2 it was designated a RAF cemetery. Used by many local Bomber command airfields in the area by the end of WW2 the total graves had risen to 671.
