Vice Admiral Sir John Osler Chattock Hayes, KCB, OBE, DL
A story of a remarkable Navy career and the continuous good work he carried out in his retirement, for the good of Ross & Cromarty.
Private Elizabeth T. Mackay, W/64368
On May 11, 1943, 26 women were killed at Great Yarmouth when enemy fighter bombers made a direct hit on their seafront hostel – the greatest loss of life in one raid in any of the women’s services.
This grave is a private memorial to Elizabeth and her twin brothers. It is listed as one of the the Commonwealth war Graves Commission responsibilities to ensure her name is always legible and the stone is in good condition. If it were to fall into disrepair, only Elizabeth’s name would be preserved.
