    Background: Pilgrimage to British graves, near Nijmegan.

    On the invitation of the Dutch Wargraves Committee the surviving relations of British soldiers who died in 1944 during the liberation of Holland and who were buried in Dutch soil, came to Holland for a visit to their graves.

    For the first time this year the surviving relations of soldiers who were buried as "unknown", because they could not be identified, were coming to Holland. These people know that their boy is buried somewhere and that one of these "unknown" graves is their son's or husband's, but a shadow of uncertainty will always linger around these graves....
