As part of a drive to increase awareness of the number of Commonwealth war casualties buried in cemeteries within the United Kingdom, the Commission has unveiled the first of a series of new signs.

The new signage, in the same style and colours the Commission uses in places like France and Belgium, will be appearing at hundreds of cemeteries over the next few months.  The first was unveiled at Sunderland’s Bishopwearmouth Cemetery by Commissioner and local MP, Kevan Jones.

A video on the Commission’s work in Scotland is also online at www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-15719528.  The latest CWGC annual report is also now available at www.cwgc.org/admin/files/new%20complete%20AR%202011.pdf

 

(With thanks to the CWGC)
