In memoriam

Part of the American cemetery in Madingley, where thousands of US air force personnel who lost their lives in World War II are remembered. The long wall on the right is engraved with their names, and it makes sobering reading. The cemetery was built on land donated by the University of Cambridge and is a lovely, peaceful place, even if this part of it looks like a cut-down Taj Mahal. In my time, I’ve seen both Bill Clinton and Al Gore here on Memorial Day visits.
