War Graves, Newburgh

I have posted about Newburgh before, but I hadn’t visited its cemetery until in August 2018 I found four graves each with a possible war link.

Regulating Petty Officer A S Anderson, RN, HMS St George, 14/5/1944, aged 43:-

Corporal J MacNaughton RAF, 8/9/1946, aged 28:-

Newburgh War Grave

Private J Blyth, The Black Watch, 3/1/1915:-

Great War Grave, Newburgh

An unusual one this. It has a Commonwealth War Graves style headstone but is inscribed, “Alexander Ilytch Shenkman, born Moscow 29/11/1923, died Newburgh 21/2/2004.”:-
