Basra War Cemetery

Hi folks,

Having just read Pettsy's post regarding the appalling condition of war graves in Baghdad, I wonder does anyone know if it's the same story in Basra War Cemetery? One of my granddad's second cousins, Thomas Philpott, is buried there (see signature below).

cheers

Thanks,

Sorry - I didn't read the title of the link and just assumed the photos were taken in Baghdad! (Doh!!)

Still, an absolute disgrace though - I wonder if and when the cemeteries will ever be restored? :(

cheers

Steve
