The village of
Avekapelle is located east of the town of Veurne off the N35 which runs
between Veurne and Diksmuide. Driving out of Veurne along the N35 go past the
turning on the left for the N330 and take the next turning on the right called
Avekapellestraat. Follow this road to the end, go straight across the junction
and the church is in front of you. The grave is at the south-east corner of
119577 Flying Officer Vincent James Markey, Pilot in 174 Squadron, Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, died 30th July 1943, aged 23. Son of James H. and Lilian Edith Markey, of Glasgow.
