Thugs branded ‘despicable’ after veteran graves vandalised before D-Day

The graves of fallen British war heroes have been deliberately smashed by thugs in the run-up to the 75th anniversary of D-Day. They were damaged at Hirst Wood burial ground in Bradford, Yorkshire. Among headstones damaged was that to 21-year-old rear gunner Sgt Peter William Bilsborough (pictured left, and his gravestone pictured right), who drowned after his plane caught fire and fell in the sea while returning from a Second World War bombing mission. Sgt Bilsborough’s niece Julie Watson (inset top right), 63, said the vandalism of war graves at the Hirst Wood burial ground in Shipley, Bradford, was ‘absolutely despicable’ and had left her feeling disgusted. Police have said they are investigating the damage which they believe happened before the D-Day anniversary on Monday or Tuesday this week.
