This is a biennial Service which began in 1988 and is now on odd years. The Royal Flying Corps Cemetery is owned by the British Commonwealth War Graves Commission having been purchased in 1924. The Twelve buried there were British, Canadian, and US volunteers killed in WW-1 Pilot training. Some 7,000 British and Canadians along with a few eager yanks came here in October 1917, and left in April 1918. 39 RFC in total died. More American US Army Air Service deaths brought the total over 100.

We will have Canadian Consul General Hon. Douglas George from the Dallas Consulate, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy guests, a US Marine rifle detail, biplane and F-16 fly overs, and Chaplain Lt. Charles Daniels III, USN, from NAS JRB. Having a lawn chair is a good idea.
