LAC Kenneth Frere stated the following in the September 1942 issue of the Spartan News: “… the first and most lasting impression we get is the real value of American Hospitality. It seems that you can’t do enough for us – in everything we do there is someone to help us and make us feel at home. We enjoy all our time here and we thoroughly appreciate how helpful you all are to us – for the rest of our lives, Miami and No. 3 BFTS will be a bright spot in our memories. We’re glad it was Miami they chose for us.”
We here at G.A.R. Cemetery, strive to continue to keep this part of Miami’s history alive. By holding our annual British Flyers Remembrance Ceremony, we do that, as well as making sure that the lives lost by the 15 brave British Cadets that are interred here at G.A.R. Cemetery so far from their families and homelands, are never forgotten.
