CWGC signs historic centenary agreements
22 February 2013
The CWGC has signed agreements with both the German Volksbund Deutsche
Kriegsgräberfürsorge e.V. (VDK) and the French Mission du Centenaire,
symbolising our desire to work closely with our European
colleagues, to mark the centenary of the First World War.
The VDK is the German counterpart of the CWGC and charged by the
German Government to take care of registering the German war dead
The Mission du Centenaire was created in 2012 by the French
government, to prepare and deliver a commemorative programme for
the centenary of the First World War.
