Will we remember them?
War graves at Newmachar Cemetery including an unusual "double" grave. Most of those buried at Newmachar lost their lives in a naval disaster in 1942. The St Briac was a cross-channel ferry commandeered for Naval Auxiliary Patrol (NAP) work on the eastern Scottish coast. On March 12 1942, a storm forced the ship onto a (British) minefield and the ship sank after hitting a mine. Lifeboats were launched, but most of them were lost in the storm and a total of 47 men died. For more, see: LinkExternal link
