I have just received these photographs from my cousin, Peter Young, who is currently in Prayagraj, formerly known as Allahabad, India.

With the aid of his guide, Niraj Singh and his driver, Alok, and the cemetery custodian, they entered the dense undergrowth on a quest.

So dense was the vegetation that the only way through was to cut a path with machetes. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Seems there's been no-one working in the cemetery for several years , hard to believe the difference from 2012 to now ! .

That’s incredible. I was there in 2012 - walked around the whole cemetery.
So many interesting graves and memorials. There was even a stone pith helmet on the ground next to a RA grave which looked as if it hadn’t been moved in over 100 years. What a shame.

MarkDRob,

I doubt that you would recognise the fact that hidden beneath all of this vegetation is the South Wales Borderers memorial.

Hi All

Mission for the Regiment don't you think. Might be an idea to include the photos in a letter to the museum or Colonel of the Regiment, I'm sure they would do something about it knowing these photos are in the public domain.

Eddie,

I appraised my contacts within the Royal Welsh and the museum at Brecon prior to posting the photographs on the forum.

Hopefully the matter is already in hand.

The cemetery is now in an area which forms part of a military base for the Indian Army.
