    This one confused me for a while:
    Herbert Riding
    BIRTH 15.8.1920 • Dodworth, Yorkshire, England
    DEATH 9.8.1942 • Alabama, USA

    until I read the CWGC section on the actual cemetery

    Historical Information
    Montgomery (Oakwood) Cemetery Annexe contains 78 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, all airmen who died while training in Alabama under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. There are also 20 French war graves in the cemetery and two non-war burials.
