    This is the cemetery that the USAF and some Gurkhas and attached cleaned up last month under the direction of an ex WO2 QOHLDRS/RHF working out there. Video here:

    No difference, if you haven't read the article.

    She was asked to organise a commemorative ceremony in the cemetery at former RAF Habbaniyah ( where there are 280+ British graves) now under management by said Septics. Finding the cemetery somewhat, ahem, neglected, she declined.

    Then, with Iraqi and US volunteers, she cleared and restored it. Then she organised the commemorative ceremony.

    The honour is ours.

  14. This isn’t the first time a yank has been involved in Remembrance Day. On the Bristol Parade in 2000, one of the Cenotaph party was a US Marine SSgt who was on a two year attachment with the RMR. I recall he was nominated to carry out the duty to demonstrate the close ties between the RM and USMC and also as part of the Korean War Veterans 50th anniversary memorial service’s held in the city.
