British Cemetery

31 05 2009

There’s a British Cemetery on Ocracoke. The cemetery actually belongs to Great Britain and the Union Jack is flown from it.


During WWII, a German submarine sank a British ship off the North Carolina coast. The bodies of four British sailors washed ashore on the Outer Banks. The men were buried on a small plot of land that later became the British Cemetery.
