Deinze 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.

 

Deinze Communal Cemetery contains one Commonwealth burial of the Second World War, that of a Belgian airman who served with the Royal Air Force.

Flying Officer DE SAINT AUBAIN, Camille Albert Josep, N° 130771

The grave is marked by a private memorial. On entering the cemetery turn right and follow the path. Take the second path to the left and the war grave is the first on the left.
