A Visit to Cambridge Cemetery by Andy Bradley



Andy Bradley visited the Cambridge Cemetery in England, where many of our Armed Guard Shipmates are buried or have their names on the Wall there. He was kind enough to provide pictures documenting his visit, and they are greatly appreciated.

S1/C Walter Porter's resting place. You can read about Walter Porter in the book, "The Fighting Liberty Ships." He, along with three other Armed Guard Crew lost their lives in a collision. Two were missing and their names are engraved on the wall to the missing and the fourth S1/C Graydon Taylor was buried at Cambridge but his grave is no longer listed there so he must have come home at some point. - Courtesy of Andy Bradley
