Cemetery notes and/or description:
Location Information: Aalst is a town astride the main Brussels-Gent road, about 29 kilometres from each. The cemetery is located in Kerkhoflaan, a turning off of Leo de Bethunelaan. Historical Information: The British Expeditionary Force was involved in the later stages of the defence of Belgium following the German invasion in May 1940, and suffered many casualties in covering the withdrawal to Dunkirk. Commonwealth forces did not return until September 1944, but in the intervening years, many airmen were shot down or crashed in raids on strategic objectives in Belgium, or while returning from missions over Germany. Aalst Communal Cemetery contains six Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. The graves are in the Belgian pelouse d'honneur.
