Reburial at Canadian war cemetery

22 April 2015

On 6 May 2015 a reburial service will take place for the Second World War Canadian soldier Pte Albert Laubenstein. He was killed on 26 January 1945 during the Battle of Kapelsche Veer and buried at the time with care in a battlefield grave.

It was only in 2014 that Pte Laubenstein's body was recovered. Thorough investigation from the Dutch Recovery and Identification Unit led to his positive identification.

Pte Laubenstein will be buried with military honours on 6 May at 1300 at Bergen-op-Zoom Canadian War Cemetery.
