The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has relaunched its website at www.cwgc.org. As part of the new site the interface for the Search for War Dead page has been expanded – in addition to previous search parameters you can now also search by rank, service number, regiment and even secondary regiment, as well as by honours and awards.

I have many times asked myself whether there can be more potent advocates of peace upon earth through the years to come than this massed multitude of silent witnesses to the desolation of war.King George V, Flanders, 1922
