Chéronvilliers Churchyard, Eure, France

Quite by chance, the Webmaster and his wife visited this cemetery only two days after the anniversary of the crash. They were both deeply impressed and moved by the beautiful arrangements of fresh flowers that lay by each headstone.

49Sqn Association voudrait remercier sincèrement les habitants de Chéronvilliers de leur dédicace constante et de leur entretien soigneux des sépultures de l'équipe du Lancaster LM337.
