8th_Europe_Report -- 27_old_new11.jpg
Here is another modern view of inside the cemetery.  The old postcard Photo #009 give ne names on the cross grave markers as names on headstones: Robert Fitzgerald Clark, Ensign USNRF & Arthur Lee Boorse, Ensign USNRF, and "Died Aug 21, ’18, at Brest".   The fresh grave of enlisted sailor Machinist Mate 2nd Class is not shown.  Reportedly the bodies of all 3 airmen were returned to the US for reburial.  UPDATE NOTE: We at first thought that Photo #092 was also taken inside this cemetery, but our local historian friends Monique and Alain have corrected us. It was taken in the “Saint-Martin” cemetery (nearer to the town center). "Those 'chapel graves' did not exist in Kerfautras, only in St Martin. Picture #092 could have been taken on the way from the harbor to the town center."
