Thought some of you may be interested in this photograph I took yesterday of the graves of 3 Polish Airmen who are buried in Movilla Cemetery, Newtownards.

Hi
Yes indeed.
Take a look at my website http://ww2ni.webs.com
Cannot remember which County Down section the details are in. I will be updating the picture later today.

Many thanks for the information. I visited Movilla  many times when I lived in Donaghadee some years ago but never saw those graves.

Keep up the good work.
Tom
