    A little video I made recently about the Germans lying at rest alongside Allied aircrew in Dyce cemetery outside Aberdeen.

    Shane,

    Thank you for the efforts and time spent on this video.
    If you don't mind I ll do some research to find the airmen s families in Germany.
    Since Aberdeen was not on our trip to Scotland in April this year, I might visit the cemetery myself.
    Stefan.

    Might have to have a gander myself. Dyce is five minutes from my house.

    Yeah quite a few Allied graves there alongside the Germans... all air crew from RAF Dyce. Im doing some research on a Wellington that went down to put into a video as the crew is buried there. There are also a couple of WW1 graves at Newhills near Bucksburn.

    Here is a vid I did on one of them. Its good to remember.

    Cheers. I live in Blackburn just outside the city. I visited and photographed quite a few local cemeteries and war memorials as part of a WW1 project I was doing for work. I went to both Bucksburn and Dyce memorials but not the cemeteries.

    I live in Cove so the other side of the city. I like investigating the CWGC headstones and finding out about the people.
