A British naval flag flies over this 2,290-square-foot plot of land, situated amid historic homes, which is leased to the British government as long as the sailors rest there. Another British cemetery is located near the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in Buxton. These two cemeteries stand as memorials to these British sailors' bravery and sacrifice defending allies along the area known as “Torpedo Junction." 24 Royal Navy vessels patrolled sensitive areas along the East Coast, including the Outer Banks; during the early years of World War II. On May 12, 1942, while the HMS Bedfordshire was on patrol, a German torpedo struck the ship and sank it, resulting in the loss of its entire 34-man British crew.
