    BUXTON, N.C. - Commodore Eric Fraser, the British Naval Attach? in Washington, D.C., presents his comments during the annual British Cemetery Memorial Services in Buxton Thursday, May 6, 2010. The graveside ceremonies commemorate the loss of British and Canadian sailors from the H.M.S. Bedfordshire and the British merchant vessel San Delfino. Some of the crewmen's bodies were recovered from the waters off Ocracoke Island and Hatteras Island after the ships were torpedoed by German U-Boats in 1942. The Bedfordshire and the Sandelfino were working with the Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy to protect American shipping lanes, where U-boats had been sinking oil tankers important to the war effort. Representatives from the Coast Guard, the British Royal Navy, the Canadian Navy, the friends of the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, and local high school students participated in the event. Coast Guard Sector North Carolina, the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, and friends of the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum conducted the event.
