Grave Ref: Grave 8-C-29
CWGC Casualty 2063906
Benghazi is a seaport on the Mediterranean. The cemetery is about 7 kilometres south-east of Benghazi in the Fuihat area, about 300 metres from the childrens' hospital on the opposite side of the road. From the city centre take the road following the coast past the sports stadium. Approximately 2 kilometres beyond the stadium is a large roundabout with a flyover on to the Tripoli road. Turn left at this roundabout, and the War Cemetery is found 3 kilometres along this road on the left hand side. NB: Benghazi War Cemetery should not be confused with Benghazi British Military Cemetery passed after about 1 kilometre on the right side of the road.
