Historical Information

Although Sweden retained her neutrality throughout the Second World War, a number of Commonwealth servicemen are buried there, most of them airmen who failed to return from bombing raids over Germany or German occupied territories.

Malmo Eastern Municipal Cemetery contains the graves of six Commonwealth airmen of the Second World War.
