    Further to my post of last year it seems there is
    another part of the USA which will forever be British!

    The land was leased to the Commonwealth War Graves
    Commission, which keeps track of and maintains all graves
    of soldiers who died in either of the two World Wars. And
    since it was granted ‘in perpetuity’, this memorial and
    gravesite in North Carolina will forever be considered British soil.

    Pity that threads get automatically closed ....

    I suspect there are a lot of these little cemeteries around the world which have a similar status.

    A well known case of an extraterritorial cemetry is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomb_of_Suleyman_Shah
