And, the answer for the the question is :

Explanation:

[STC002166] A tiny cemetery on Ocracoke, which is located in North Carolina, is the sole piece of real estate in the United States that is still owned by the British government. Back in 1942, the United States lacked an anti-submarine force to combat German U-boats, so the British sent some to close the gap. One of these ships, the HMS Bedfordshire, was sunk by a torpedo fired by the enemy, and the remains of four of its crew members were found on land. The citizens of Ocracoke buried them and the government later gave the 0.052 acres — or about 2,200 square feet — of burial plot to England.
