    The Unknown Airman. On 25 May 1943 the body of an unknown RAF Airman was washed ashore on Cefn Sidan Beach. He is buried at Pembrey. The base of the headstone is carved with the simple, yet moving, enscription chosen by Rudyard Kipling after World War One, and which adorns thousands of graves of unknown Allied servicemen; 'Known Unto God'.
