Last time I was in London (sadly as long ago as 2009), I went to visit where Al Bowlly was laid to rest. He was killed by a Luftwaffe parachute mine that detonated outside his flat (32 Duke Street, Dukes Court, St James, London) and was buried in a mass grave in Hanwell Cemetery (City of Westminster Cemetery), 38 Uxbridge Road, Ealing, Greater London, W7 3PP, England, UK.
