These graves for a 35 Squadron Pathfinder crew at Kuinre in Holland are amongst the most beautiful I have ever seen. This is a particularly lovely setting and at the moment the only one I can think of which rivals it is Durnbach in Bavaria, but Kuinre is far smaller and more intimate.

I will be posting more details of the 35 Squadron crew on the RAF Pathfinders Archive website next week. The skipper’s name was Squadron Leader Wilfred Surtees, and he survived the crash to become a prisoner of war.
