The next few are German graves. The first is post war - an officer killed whilst serving at Lossiemouth:

The next are WW2 German graves. Most are buried together; however there is a Scot between 2 of the graves bearing the same date. It does not appear that any distinction was made between friend and foe. Well done Lossiemouth!

Walter's grave was covered with a wreath laid on behalf of the German War Graves Commission by the RBL.

Some of my photos are of dubious quality. I will rectify this when I can - or sooner if anyone is particularly interested in a grave.

In my defence it was getting dark - and blowing a gale!
