    Default Houthalen Cemetery, Belgium

    This is the memorial in Houthalen Cemetery to the four RAF aircraft lost over the area during the war.

    The aircraft were:
    1. Whitley Z6479;
    2. Stirling BF448;
    3. Wellington HF457;
    4. Halifax LK842.

    My great uncle was lost on Wellington HF457.

    I am intrigued as why all but one of the names mentioned appear to have their initials reversed. Is this a Dutch/Belgian/Flemish thing? I would love to know why this is.
