Prayer

British soldiers and chaplain honor those killed in war.  Not all those buried at the cemetery served in the military. The most famous civilian grave may be that of Hungarian-born British archaeologist Aurel Stein, famed for his exploration of the “Silk Road” across Central Asia. He was denied permission to enter Afghanistan for many years. Finally allowed to enter in 1943, he died in Kabul that year.
