Arthur Horrell

From Fred

Pictures of the first grave location of Arthur and Louis.
They where buried near the place of the crash.
The grave on the right is a German grave…..
On the other picture two Dutch girls taking  care on the grave of Arthur or Louis.

Fred wrote back with the translation of the title.

Hello Pierre.
 
Translated:
2 Dutch girls take care of the grave of an English Pilot.
It was the most common text on a fieldgrave.
Both, Allies as Germans suffered huge losses in this area during “Aintree”
It was complete chaos during and after the battle of Overloon/Venray.
The casualties were hurriedly buried. Only a quick registration.
Casualties were buried by civilians, Germans, or Allies….
I’ve no reason to believe that’s not the grave of Arthur or Louis.
 
Kind regards,

Fred
