Age: 27
Parents: Alexander and Annie Sutherland of Brora

SUTHERLAND, Alexander
N..A.A.F.I
Died 13th January 1962
Aged 45
Interred in Hedjuff Cemetery, Aden

Note that Alexander Sutherland's headstone is a private memorial made to look like a CWGC headstone.

I don't know the relationship between these two men but given their ages I'd guess they were brothers. It would be interesting to see Alexander's grave in Aden.

Graeme Coghill tragically died in 1990 whilst on holiday in Mexico.

'In the service of Peace' refers to him just returning from peacekeeping duties in Africa with the UN before he travelled to Acapulco on holiday.
