    The grave markers are amazingly good to read compared with the state of the picture.

    The three men on the back row - Flying Officer Peter Sutherland Thomas, Flying Officer Melvin Wilson Collins and Flying Officer Donald James Smith were flying Handley-Page Halifax Mk V DG390 of 295 Squadron. The fourth crewmember was Sergeant Barrie Noel Stephenson, who is commemorated on panel 4 at the Sheffield Crematorium.
    Aboard were also three men of the 1st Battalion Army Glider Pilot Regiment: Sergeant Francis Joseph Davies, Sergeant Roland Davies Sunter and Sergeant Ronald Herbert Borton. They were not buried at Bransgore.

    The Nebo seminary was a British hospital during the war. Not far from here, on the other side of the road from Groesbeek to Nijmegen and next to the Sionshof was another small Temporary Cemetery.

    The novella 'Five graves at Nijmegen", written by Eric Baume, was published by B.T. Batsford Ltd. in London in the spring of 1945. It has run into several editions, both in English and Dutch. Up till now it is a story shrouded in mystery. It tells us what happened around the graves opposite the British hospital in the Nebo seminary and next to hotel Sionshof.
