  • On May the 12 1942 the HMS Bedfordshire was sank just off the coast with a loss of her entire 34 man crew. Four of the five recovered British sailors are buried here. It's a simple yet poignant cemetery.
  • Excellent historical landmark.
  • Tribute to the British who died there
  • Neat history but there isn't much parking there.
  • Interesting and somewhat sad to know all those men are forever lost at sea. Nice piece of history to show your children and teach them the sacrifice these men made.
