    Here are two graves of Home Guard Volunteers who were killed in action during an air raid on the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, Hampshire on 16th August, 1940. They are buried, side by side, in the graveyard of St John's Church in Cove, Farnborough. I believe that their shelter was hit.
