Historical Information

The occupation of the German colony of Togoland (now Togo) began on 7 August 1914 when a detachment of the Gold Coast Regiment landed at Lome, supported from the north by French troops. There was fighting at Agbeluvoe and at Khra (or Chra) before the German forces surrendered on 26 August at Amuchu, near Kamina.

There is one Commonwealth burial of the First World War in Wahala Cemetery, that of the first British officer killed in action in the war.
