Commonwealth War Graves Commission Archives

cwgc2

 

The presentation will begin by introducing why the CWGC was founded with particular focus on the contents of our archives during the conception of the commission. It will then explore the contents of their archives today and how they are accessible to anyone wishing to research the casualties we care for. We will then round the things off by showing you some of the incredibly special items stored in our archives that provide a fascinating insight into the task of ensuring casualties of both world wars are never forgotten.
