Baisy-Thy Communal Cemetery

History Information (Source: CWGC)

The British Expeditionary Force was involved in the later stages of the defence of Belgium following the German invasion in May 1940, and suffered many casualties in covering the withdrawal to Dunkirk. Commonwealth forces did not return until September 1944, but in the intervening years, many airmen were shot down or crashed in raids on strategic objectives in Belgium, or while returning from missions over Germany.


Baisy-Thy Communal Cemetery contains the graves of three Commonwealth airmen of the Second World War. The 3 Commonwealth graves are located at the far end of the cemetery from the entrance close to the back wall and to the right of the main path.
