The Mass RAF Funerals at Cambridge


The Mass RAF Funerals at Cambridge – a brief overview of the conditions on 16/17 December 1943 is followed by an illustrated account of the extraordinary mass funerals at Cambridge City Cemetery on 22 December 1943 when 20 Pathfinders, most of them Canadians and Australians, were buried in a single row. It was customary for photographs to be taken of the funerals of overseas aircrew on behalf of their families who were unable to attend. The photographs used here of the Pathfinder ceremonies conjure up an unforgettable impression of that very sad day.

This is sold on behalf of the RAF Pathfinders Archive and all profits go towards paying off the outstanding loan for the purchase of the Deverill collection.
