Malbork

Commonwealth War Cemetery

  ul. 500-lecia     more than a year ago

Located about 2.5km from the centre of town on the road to Kwidzyn, this well-kept cemetery (one of three similar cemeteries in Poland - the other two being in Poznań and Kraków) is the final resting place of British, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand soldiers, sailors and airmen from the two world wars who either lost their lives on or over Polish soil or who died in the country as a POW.

There is a post here from a Liane Brassard asking for information about Jackie Westgate. How can I reach her through this site?

I am trying to find out any information about my Uncle, PO R.J (Jackie) Westgate who's squadron RAF 97 was shot down on July 11, 1942 - the cemetary log at Malbork shows that graveston is located Coll. grave 3. B. 12-14. I am hoping that someone may have a picture of his headstone showing his name. He was a Canadian based in Great Britain during WW2, died at age 21, shot down during a friendly flight in a Lancaster bomber, Ser#5696 departed Woodhall Spa at 1642 hrs.If anyone could tell me if there is an archived photo, or any other information, it would be wonderful to pass on to my Mother Jean, his younger sister. Thank you so much!
