The night of 16/17 December 1943, afterwards known as Black Thursday, saw the worst RAF bad weather losses of the entire war. A heavy fog caused severe problems for home-coming aircraft and there were multiple fatal crashes. Amongst the dead were 50 Pathfinder aircrew.
This lavishly illustrated booklet tells the story of the extraordinary mass funerals at Cambridge City Cemetery on 22 December 1943 when 20 Pathfinders, most of them Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders, were buried in a single row. The photographs here of the Pathfinder ceremonies conjure up an unforgettable impression of that very sad day.
