The Cost Of War

As I have just posted, I love cemeteries.  Exeter Cememtery has, like most around Britain, assorted War Graves.  However there is also a specific section dedicated to the dead of WWII - Commonwealth, German, Polish, Italian ... as well as some of the civilians killed my enemy action.

I do go to many war cemeteries, and go to the Cenotaph every year ... these people should never be forgotten.  By visiting they are remembered -

The Commonwealth War Cememtery section.

Exeter had air raids over the city, in the so-called Baedeker Raids (like Coventry & Cantebury)
